OUTER SPACE ACT

The Outer Space Act 1986 (the Act) and The Outer Space Act 1986 (Gibraltar) Order 1996 (the Order) are the legal basis for the regulation of activities in outer space (including the launch of space objects, procuring the launch of space objects and operation of space objects) carried on by persons connected with Gibraltar. The Order confers licensing and other powers on the Governor, which powers are delegated to the Chief Executive of the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority (GRA). The Act and the Order seeks to ensure compliance with the UK’s obligations under international conventions covering the use of outer space, including liability for damage caused by space objects and the registration of objects launched into outer space.
