Questionnaire on possible Legal Issues with regard to Aerospace Objects: Replies from member States

At its thirty-eighth session, the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space noted that, at the thirty-fourth session of the Legal Subcommittee, the Working Group of the Subcommittee on an agenda item on "Matters relating to the definition and delimitation of outer space and to the character and utilization of the geostationary orbit" had finalized the text of a questionnaire on possible legal issues with regard to aerospace objects. The Committee agreed with the Legal Subcommittee ( A/AC.105/607 and Corr.1, para. 38) that the purpose of the questionnaire was to seek the preliminary views of States members of the Committee on various issues relating to aerospace objects. The Committee also agreed that the replies to the questionnaire could provide a basis for the Legal Subcommittee to decide how it might continue its consideration of this agenda item.

At its forty-first session, the Legal Subcommittee endorsed the report of the Working Group on agenda item 6 (a), "Matters relating to the definition and delimitation of outer space". The working group revised the questionnaire on possible legal issues with regard to aerospace objects and agreed to amend questions 7 and 8 and to add a question 10. The Working Group agreed that the questionnaire, as amended, should be circulated to all Member States of the United Nations ( A/AC.105/787, annex II, paras. 8, 10 and 11).

The questionnaire can be obtained from the links below in MSWord and PDF format.
