UNMANNED AIRCRAFT SYSTEM "UAS" - DRONES
NEW REGULATION (EU) 2019/945
The new Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/945, about Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and third-country operators of UAS, better known as DRONES, has been published on the Official Journal of the European Union number L152 dated 11 June 2019.
The Regulation will enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.
The Regulation lays down the requirements for the design and manufacture of UAS intended to be operated under the rules and conditions defined in Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/947 and of remote identification add-ons. It also defines which type of UAS's design, production and maintenance shall be subject to certification.
The Regulation also establishes rules both on intending UAS for use in the «open» category and remote identification add-ons available on the market, and on their free movement in the Union.
Furthermore, the Regulation defines rules for third-country UAS operators, when they conduct a UAS operation pursuant to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/947 within the single European sky airspace.
UAS which are not toys, within the meaning of Directive 2009/48/EC, must comply with the relevant essential health and safety requirements set out in Directive 2006/42/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council in so far as this Directive applies to them, to the extent that those health and safety requirements are not intrinsically linked to the safety of the flight by UAS. Where those health and safety requirements are intrinsically linked to the safety of the flight, only the Regulation (UE) 2019/945 should apply.
