The IISL Standing Committee on the Status of International Agreements Relating to Activities in Outer Space under the chairmanship of Andrei D. Terekhov (Ph.D. (Law), Moscow, Member of the International Academy of Astronautics, and Member of the IISL Board of Directors from 1994 to 2006) has published its 2022 Annual Report.

At the meeting of the IISL Board of Directors held at Brighton, United Kingdom, in October 1987, the Board decided to create a standing committee of the Institute to prepare and submit at each annual Colloquium a report on the status of agreements relating to activities in outer space.

Institute members who can contribute substantively to the work of the committee are invited to serve on it. Membership is open to any interested IISL member. The committee members help collect, review and verify data concerning selected space agreements. Agreements of general global applicability or regional applicability are selected for reporting. Bilateral agreements are not included in the report. In general, the agreements included in the present report, and their status, are believed to be valid at least as of 1 January 2022.

The Annual Report is available on our website at as well as below for direct download.
