ECSL Executive Course on Space Law and Regulations
The ECSL is proud to announce the ECSL Executive Course on Space Law and Regulations organised in collaboration with ESA, at ESA ESTEC from 6-8 of June 2018
As the space sector becomes increasingly commercialised, both national governments and private companies have a need for knowledge about the legal dimensions related to space activities. The ECSL and ESA recognise these changes, and wish to offer an opportunity for a structured introduction to space law and regulations to government representatives and industry professionals.
While the ECSL Summer Course is a great resource for students, the Executive Course will deliver a high-quality and tailor-made course for government representative and industry professionals, with a strong focus on the practical aspects of the legal dimensions relevant for regulating and conducting space activities.
The course will be organised together with ESA's Legal Services Department and greatly benefit from their extensive expertise in dealing with regulations relevant for space missions. In addition, the course will feature technical and legal experts from other ESA departments and a limited number of external experts.
Issues which will be discussed include but are not limited to:
- An introduction to space law and space governance
- National space legislation: Rationale, content and development
- Regulatory and technical requirements for clearing a space mission
- Export control
- Typologies of Space Contracts
- Space debris mitigation
- Filing for frequencies
- Space object registration
The course will also include a tour of ESTEC's clean room and concurrent design facilities, to give insight into the process of clearing a mission for space.
A full programme will be made available in the coming weeks.
