    Title

    Space law Developments in Asia-Pacific: Diverging national space legislation with regard to the applicability of space law to suborbital flights

    Description

    Outer Space Treaty principles of state responsibility and liability, as well as duty to register spacecraft, while respecting the status of astronauts as envoys of mankind. The last 10-15 years have seen the emergence of a growing body of national space law, as States increasingly recognise the need to have in place appropriate domestic regulatory frameworks for their national space activities. This trend has been matched by the exponential growth in space-related technology, which opens the possibilities for a vast array of new space and high altitude activities, including proposed sub-orbital and low orbit activities. Many of these may be based on 'non-traditional' technology. This is a worldwide phenomenon, and includes the Asia-Pacific region. This session seeks to encourage discussion and analysis of how these factors are shaping the content and scope of national space law, both in terms of a re-evaluation of those existing national laws that largely pre-dated 'NewSpace' technology, as well as the development of new laws that seek to most appropriately address the respective needs of each country.
