Details

The Government has published its response to the call for evidence to inform further policy development of the Space Industry Act 2018 provisions on liability, insurance and charging.

The Government issued the call for evidence so that it can gather evidence, data and information that will assist in formulating the policy.

Evidence and information was sought on the impact on the UK launch market of operators holding unlimited liabilities, the approach to setting the minimum amount of third-party liability insurance required for UK launch activities and the preferred approach to charging – for example, fixed fees or hourly rates.

Work across Government is now ongoing to develop the detailed regulations to implement the Act with industry and other interested parties.
