Among others:

On a flight where two pilots are present, and the pilot using BasicMed must act as PIC. This applies to a pilot acting as safety pilot or a flight instructor.

BasicMed pilot must fly entirely within the United States. Otherwise the BasicMed pilot must be "authorized" by the other county.

BasicMed pilot may operate an airplane capable of flying faster than 250 knots or higher than 18,000, but the pilot cannot exceed these limitations.
