ISO 26872:2010 specifies requirements for the following: planning for disposal of satellites operating at geosynchronous altitude to ensure that final disposal is sufficiently characterized and that adequate propellant will be reserved for the manoeuvre; selecting final disposal orbits where the satellite will not re-enter the operational region within the next 100 years; executing the disposal manoeuvre successfully; depleting all energy sources on board the vehicle before the end of its life to minimize the possibility of an event that can produce debris. ISO 26872:2010 provides techniques for planning and executing the disposal of space hardware that reflect current internationally accepted guidelines and consider current operational procedures and best practices.
