Why Use the LRR?
The LRR main function is to act as a platform to manage ongoing activities on the Moon by allowing Clients to register their activities; the LRR is only as good as the number of, and validity or registrants. Therefore, LRR imposes strict guidelines on who can register.
The LRR is a European based commercial and transparent platform enabling the evaluation, verification and registration of resources and infrastructure locations, using public and proprietary data sourced internationally. It is internationally-focussed and transparent; all registrations are listed on the LRR Public Registry. The LRR is also a registry of space agency and inter-governmental objectives, including science and non-profit claims.

LRR is a Service
LRR is a service for Clients, LRR agrees to provide as part of this service certain activities that support, protect and reinforce a Lunar Resources Registration.
Principles of the Lunar Resources Registry
The following principles provide the necessary oversight and governance that is integral to the LRR business model and values:
LRR Registrations are to be made:
‣ Based on evaluating a Registrant's mission and business plan.
‣ Within the framework of existing space law and policy.
‣ Using a balance of fair-pricing and price-discovery; Registrations are not a privilege, nor are they a right.
‣ A fee-based Registration is based on a transaction, the price of the transaction being a measure of the Registrant's integrity.
‣ A non-fee based Registration is based on the goodwill of the Registrant.
‣ A Registration (a service of LRR) is an asset of the Registrant, but not a right to a resource.
Registration Limits and Exclusions
LRR Registrations shall not be made:
‣ That violate existing and planned space treaties.
‣ That infringe on previous, existing, or high-profile yet to be implemented registrations.
‣ That constitute monopolistic commercial and non-commercial behaviour.
‣ That are theoretical in nature, and used as a promotion for unrealistic business models and ventures.
‣ To individuals or corporations that have no way of validating their respective Registration by conducting appropriate missions or undertaking business planning.
LRR has the right to rescind, revoke and cancel a Registration on the following grounds:
‣ The Registrant publicly states or promotes a purpose that deviates significantly from their intended purpose.
‣ A Registry is transferred (e.g. sold, bequeathed) to an organisation that can not prove itself as a legal entity, and or, capable of undertaking the original intentions of the Registration.
