The "CENTRO ESPAÑOL DE DERECHO ESPACIAL” (CEDE – SPANISH SPACE LAW CENTER) is a private non-profit institution, registered since 1992, with number 111,429 at the Registry of Associations of the Spanish Ministry of the Interior.

It was created as a result of an undertaking between the European Space Agency (ESA) and Spain and is a national point of contact of the European Centre for Space Law (ECSL) of the ESA.

Since it was created in 1992, the CEDE has been performing the following purposes, among others:

-The publicising in Spain of the Space technology and science developed mainly by the ESA and the NASA and the publicizing abroad of the Space technology and science developed by public and private entities and individuals of our country. The publications particularly emphasize the legal aspects relating to Space but also refer to scientific and technical aspects.

-The support to international cooperation in the space sector mainly between Spain and the ESA, by organizing lectures and the participating in congresses, seminars and lectures held in Spain and abroad.

The cooperation with official bodies and public and private institutions in those matters in which our assistance and participation has been requested.

It may be stated that the CEDE performs a wide range of external activities. Seminars, lectures and courses have been organized. It has participated in many of the meetings organized in Spain and abroad, by various bodies, institutions and public and private entities. An Informative Bulletin is published. A web page has been created and maintained on the Internet where it is intended to include legal texts and the documentation from our library. The consultations made by various public bodies have been answered and we have cooperated with these on several occasions.

The complete contents of the bulletins in addition to the list of activities performed may be consulted on our web page.
