The CAA has worked closely with the Department for Transport (DfT) and the UK Space Agency (UKSA) as an executive agency of the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) in the development of the Space Industry Act (SIA) and the associated Space Industry Regulations and Guidance Material.
We will continue to work closely with both Government Departments as they are accountable for key policy areas related to space. BEIS will retain accountability for key policy areas including satellite payloads, Government liabilities and insurance and charges related to orbital operations. The DfT will retain accountability for key policy areas including regulating spaceflight activities under the SIA (excluding in-orbit policy) and regulatory policy for security.
A fundamental principle under both the SIA and the Outer Space Act (OSA) is that the respective Secretaries of State are required to give their consent before the CAA can issue a licence under either the SIA or OSA. The Secretary of State for BEIS will give consent for orbital licences under either the SIA or OSA and the Secretary of State for DfT will give consent for spaceport, launch and range licences under the SIA.
