United Nations Register of Objects Launched into Outer Space: Model Registration Form

Resources and Reference Material

in 2007, the General Assembly adopted resolution 62/101 entitled "Recommendations on enhancing the practice of States and international intergovernmental organizations in registering space objects", which requested the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs to facilitate the registration of space objects by States and international intergovernmental organizations in conformity with the Convention on Registration of Objects Launched into Outer Space (the "Registration Convention", adopted by the General Assembly in its resolution 3235 (XXIX)) and General Assembly resolution 1721 B (XVI) of 20 December 1961.

In response, the Office has prepared a model registration form to assist in registering space objects and has consolidated the necessary reference materials on this page. The model registration form is comprised of four separate parts and reflects information customarily provided by States and organizations when registering a space object as well additional information as recommended in resolution 62/101. The four parts are:

  • Part A for information provided in conformity with the Registration Convention or General Assembly resolution 1721 B (XVI);
  • Part B for additional information for use in the United Nations Register of Objects Launched into Outer Space, as recommended in General Assembly resolution 62/101;
  • Part C for information relating to the change of supervision of a space object, as recommended in General Assembly resolution 62/101; and
  • Part D for additional voluntary information for use in the United Nations Register of Objects Launched into Outer Space.

Registration information can only be submitted by the Government of a State of registry through accredited Permanent Mission to the United Nations or by the headquarters of an international intergovernmental organization that has declared acceptance of rights and obligations under the Registration Convention.
