DescriptionReview of the Remote Sensing Space Systems Act (RSSSA) (of Canada)
Additional informationRecognising the expertise of the Institute of Air and Space Law in providing objective legal and policy advice to governments and industry stakeholders, the Institute was engaged by Global Affairs Canada (GAC) to provide independent reviews of the Act in both 2012 and 2017. Both of these independent reviews were conducted by Professor Ram Jakhu and colleagues, and provided much of the foundations for policy debates and the impetus for legislative reform.
Following the most recent review, GAC and the Institute co-hosted and convened a series of meetings of the Ad-Hoc Remote Sensing Space Systems Act Advisory Committee. The objective of the Advisory Committee was to draw on the knowledge and expertise of its members to critically review the Act, its Regulations and their implementation, with a view to proposing changes and actions that would ensure the regulatory framework is in line with emerging trends and developments in the industry.
I acted as the Co-Chair of the Ad-Hoc Remote Sensing Space Systems Act Advisory Committee.
