520    Planetary protection is a guiding principle in the design 
       of an interplanetary mission, aiming to prevent biological
       contamination of both the target celestial body and the 
       Earth. The protection of high-priority science goals, the 
       search for life and the understanding of the Martian 
       organic environment may be compromised if Earth microbes 
       carried by spacecraft are grown and spread on Mars. This 
       has led to the definition of Special Regions on Mars where
       strict planetary protection measures have to be applied 
       before a spacecraft can enter these areas. At NASA's 
       request, the community-based Mars Exploration Program 
       Analysis Group (MEPAG) established the Special Regions 
       Science Analysis Group (SR-SAG2) in October 2013 to 
       examine the quantitative definition of a Special Region 
       and proposed modifications to it, as necessary, based upon
       the latest scientific results. Review of the MEPAG Report 
       on Mars Special Regions reviews the conclusions and 
       recommendations contained in MEPAG's SR-SAG2 report and 
       assesses their consistency with current understanding of 
       both the Martian environment and the physical and chemical
       limits for the survival and propagation of microbial and 
       other life on Earth. This report provides recommendations 
       for an update of the planetary protection requirements for
       Mars Special Regions.
