The most common and important tool for nationally regulating space activities is the requirement of a license (authorization) from a designated governmental entity. A national license creates a legal nexus between the issuing state and the licensee. Such a license determines the rights and obligations of the licensee; is normally issued under certain conditions and terms; and could be terminated if the licensee acts contrary to the provisions of the applicable law, regulations, and the conditions and terms of the license.
