Regulation & Policy

- The global satellite industry repeated its grave concerns over the proposed UNIDROIT Space Assets Protocol. As delegates of UNIDROIT and its member states convened on February 27 in Berlin, Germany, for the Diplomatic Conference on the Draft Space Assets Protocol to the Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment, the European Satellite Operators’ Association, the Satellite Industry Association of Washington, D.C., the Space Industry Association of Australia and the Cable and Satellite Broadcasting Association of Asia urged delegates and Member States to defer any consideration of the Protocol due to an absence of support from the global satellite industry.
