Article VII: Liability


A comprehensive cross-waiver of liability between the two Parties and their related entities (e.g., contractors, subcontractors, and other participating entities associated with the Parties including any state from which RSA procures a launch to carry out its obligations under this agreement) shall apply to the activities under this agreement. The cross-waiver of liability shall be broadly construed. The terms of the waiver are set out in Annex 2.


Except as provided in Annex 2, the Government of the United States and the Government of the Russian Federation will remain liable in accordance with the Convention on International Liability for Damage Caused by Space Objects (the "Liability Convention") of March 29, 1972. In the event of a claim arising out of the Liability Convention, the governments will consult promptly on any potential liability, on any apportionment of such liability, and on the defense of such claim.
