Conference paper


The development of the so-called NewSpace industry, together with the emergence of new space players, both governmental and nongovernmental – which did not exist when the current international space law was formed – implies a new approach toward space-related matters including new regulatory considerations. Some of the reasons for such new approach would include the necessity for international regulatory certainty as it is required by investments, the promotion of global public interest in outer space, and the preservation of international peace and security.
