The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has proposed a rule that would limit the amount of time that rockets' upper stages stay in orbit.

FAA proposes rule to reduce space junk in Earth orbit : Read more
The US Federal Aviation Administration has no jurisdiction in Space. Whether Near Earth Orbit, Far Earth Orbit, or otherwise. They regulate " Airspace ". And only hold authority over US Airspace at that. This falls under " Overstepping Authority of Organizational Charter ".

An International Space Regulatory body, possibly under the UN will eventually occur.

With Respect.
No one pays attention to anything the UN, or International Treatise made by the UN Agencies.
Look at " Weaponizing Space ". Restricted & Banned for decades now.

Yet everyone violated that Treatise.

Look at Chemical Weapons banned by Treatise.
Assad of Syria still goes unpunished Internationally for gassing his own people on Saddam Husseins birthday.

Look at Mine Ban Treatise.
Which the US, and other Nation-States refuses to sign on to.
Ukraine signed into it. Yet, still uses / used PLM-1 " Butterfly " mines all along the Belarusian border, Eastern & Southern Ukraine. Deployed via 220mm " Uragan " Rocket Artillery system.

Even right now, Space Treatise is being violated. By the US Space Farce.

I respect what you edited out of that post. And wont repost it.
However, its kind of impossible to discuss space without discussing Politics of the respective Nation-States with Space Programs.
