The common European rules on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) enter into force on 31/12/2020 and are based on an assessment of the risk of operation, and strike a balance between the obligations of drone manufacturers and operators in terms of safety, respect for privacy, the environment, protection against noise, and security.

The new rules ensure that drone operators whether recreational or professional will have a clear understanding of what is allowed or not. They will cover each operation type from those not requiring prior permission, to those involving certified aircraft and operators, as well as minimum remote pilot training requirements.

Operators will be able to operate their drones seamlessly when traveling across the EU or when developing a business involving drones around Europe. Common rules will help foster investment and innovation in this promising sector.
