Chapter Summary

Regarding Europe, the Ministers representing the Member States of the European Space Agency (ESA), meeting in Brussels in 1999, gave to ESA the mandate to promote the commercial utilisation for a portion of the European rights of the International Space Station (ISS) and to prepare the means to allow for such commercial utilisation. The policy and legal framework definition is a fundamental element of the strategy to attract customers to utilise commercially the ISS. The establishment of the proper rules and procedures can win the confidence of private investors to venture into space. It is for that reason that ESA has based the development of such framework on the feedback from all stakeholders, starting from the external ones and continuing with the involvement of all the internal disciplines. The policy and legal framework definition is a fundamental element of the strategy to attract customers to utilise commercially the ISS.
