    On 1 January 2021, the general Space Law of Luxembourg entered into force. It complemented the 2017 Law on Space Resources by an authorization regime applicable to the remaining space activities under Luxembourg’s jurisdiction. However, the original law serving for authorizing space telecommunication, the 1991 Law on Electronic Media, has not been abolished and may be relevant for some space projects. Additionally, the new laws provide that the authorizations obtained on their basis do “not exempt the operator from the need to obtain other approvals or authorizations” required for their activities (Article 17 of the 2017 Law, Article 5 para 2 of the 2020 Law).
