Recently China has filed an International complaint against Elon Musk's company, the Starlink Internet Services project. The complaint is with the United Nations because the Chinese station has had two close encounters with the Starlink projects this year. 

According to a document submitted by China this month to the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs, these two incidents occurred on 1 July and 21 October 2021.

"For safety reasons, the China Space Station implemented preventive collision avoidance control," Beijing said in the document published on the agency's website.

Right now, there is no international law that regulates outer space. A United Nations body named The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) oversees these concerns. It assists its members to establish a framework, but how long can we exist without such a framework. 

According to an estimate, 30,000 satellites and other space debris are orbiting Earth. Only SpaceX has already launched almost 1,900 satellites as part of the Starlink network. It now plans to deploy thousands more.
