If a space vehicle production company decides to launch one of their products, are they by law required to send them off from a government certified and operated installation?
Launches are regulated by the FAA if over a certain altitude. Launch sites do have regulations that must be met, but do not have to be government run.

Example: SpaceX plans to launch Grasshopper (to a certain altitude) on test flights from it's McGregor, TX facility.
