Space Law in Australia: What is it and what does it mean?

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


Just like the financial services, banking mining and construction industries, the Australian space industry is subject to a specialist legal regime. Within Australia, and across the world, there are laws dedicated to the licensing and regulation of electromagnetic spectrum, telecommunications, and the import and export of space technology. These laws play an essential role in the ongoing operation of the space sector - they are intended to provide certainty for operators, protect Australian national interests and allow industry participants to work with a defined framework of rules.
