International Association for the Advancement of Space Safety 

The International Association for the Advancement of Space Safety (IAASS), legally established 16 April 2004 in the Netherlands, is a non-profit organisation dedicated to furthering international cooperation and scientific advancement in the field of space systems safety. In 2004 IAASS became a member of the International Astronautical Federation (IAF). In 2006 former US Senator John Glenn, first American to orbit, became Honorary Member of the IAASS. In 2010 IAASS was granted Observer status at the United Nations COPUOS (Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Space). 

The governing body of the Association is the IAASS Board, which comprises up to 30 physical persons, who select the President. The IAASS Board members are elected by the General Assembly. The Board ensures by means of criteria approved by the General Assembly, that the nationality of its members adequately reflects the nationality of the members of the Association. The IAASS is further organized in technical and standing committees. The chairmen of such committees are also members of the IAASS Board.

  The IAASS with its members and sponsors aims therefore to:  
  • Advance the science and application of space safety
  • Improve the communication, dissemination of knowledge and cooperation between interested groups and individuals in this field and related fields.
  • Improve understanding and awareness of the space safety discipline.
  • Promote and improve the development of space safety professionals and standards.
  • Advocate the establishment of safety laws, rules, and regulatory bodies at national and international levels for the civil use of space.
