EU ministers to consider proposals on drone safety standards

On Tuesday, the European Parliament agreed draft regulations to create EU standards for manufacturers which must now be put before EU member states ministers for approval.

Maximum altitude and distance limits for drone flights will be set, alongside additional safety features, common certification and training rules. The draft EU rules are designed to be proportionate to the risk posed by drone flights. Privacy and data protection rights must be safeguarded and drone operators should have sufficient training to fly.
