In the latest Trends In Transport article, the team looks at the draft Space Industry Regulations published for consultation (closing on 21 October) by the Government and reviews some of the detail in the comprehensive package of new laws.  Part I explains the significance of the new rules, which contain crucial technical detail on the licensing regime for UK spaceports, launch operators and range services – all part of the UK's preparations for launch.  To help navigate, Part II is a Space Law Map, plotting the new regulations within the existing framework of space law at international, regional and national level.

Part III of the Trends in Transport article on the draft Space Industry Regulations published for consultation (closing on 21 October) provides some detail on key elements of the new regime.
