Within the TeSeR project, Weber-Steinhaus & Smith has delivered the initial overview of the international and national rules relating to responsibility and liability for space debris. This enables the debris remediation technology at the core of the project to be constructed with these rules in mind. One of the project objectives includes contributing to consensus at regulatory level on how space debris should be removed to ensure long-term sustainability of space activities.
Weber-Steinhaus & Smith is a boutique law firm in Bremen, Germany, whose partners bring together dedicated fields of expertise in commercial and international law. The field of space law, technology and regulation is among these.
