EU drone law

A British MEP has published a draft report on the safe use of drones.

The EU does not currently have any legislation on civil drone use and the European Parliament’s transport and tourism committee is due to vote on the report in September 2015.

The report notes the rapid growth in the use of drones during the last 15 years, particularly for recreational purposes, and says that the sector urgently needs a “global, harmonised and proportionate regulatory framework on a risk assessed basis, which avoids burdensome regulations for businesses that would deter investment and job creation”.

Draft regulation from the European Aviation Safety Agency is due to be published by the end of 2015.
