The Communications, Space and Technology Commission (CST) invites the public to submit their input on the Space Data Regulations Platform and Application Document for Obtaining a Permit to provide Space Data Platform Services, which aims to establish the regulatory environment for the space sector and attract investments to contribute to the growth of the GDP, as well as to increase the effectiveness of space data governance.

CST stated that through the publication of these two documents, any entity that undertakes to establish a platform that acts as a marketplace for space data, and to collect and process the space data received from satellite operators, such as satellite images, remote sensing data, orbital data, weather data and astronomy data, can get informed with the view to obtain a license.

The platform also connects satellite operators, technical solution and application developers, researchers and entities wishing to obtain space data-based solutions.

CST underlined that the Application Document for Obtaining a Permit to provide Space Data Platform Services includes guidelines and requirements for entities interested in acquiring a license, as well as obligations of relevant parties to ensure user rights and data security.

CST calls on all concerned parties and stakeholders to provide their comments, observations and suggestions regarding the documents, emphasizing its commitment to transparency and clarity in engaging all relevant entities. The deadline for submitting the input is September 12, 2023; submission can be done through the CST website:
