A new version of the European Union’s Code of Conduct is available at http://eeas.europa.eu/non-proliferation-and-disarmament/pdf/space_code_conduct_draft_vers_16_sept_2013_en.pdf.
A more detailed assessment is forthcoming, but the basic question remains: why is this necessary? A voluntary, non-binding agreement does little (really, nothing) to address the most pressing questions facing space security and those actions needed to address best practices in space are better addressed in other fora.
