Establishing a Regulatory Framework for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) - Coming soon

This Implementation Package (iPack) is a self-contained package to facilitate and guide Ministries of Transport (MoT), Civil Aviation Authorities (CAAs), and organizations that intend to operate UAS in multiple countries in the implementation of a UAS regulatory framework that remains outside of the Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) framework.


It includes relevant documentation, tools and courses to facilitate implementation of harmonized UAS regulations and the oversight framework that will enable safe UAS operations. A dedicated expert will work remotely with the MoT/CAA/organization, providing guidance in their implementation efforts to achieve the objectives of the iPack.


Facilitate and guide Ministries of Transport, Civil Aviation Authorities, and organizations in developing a UAS regulatory framework that is consistent with principles and strategies set forth in the Chicago Convention and its Annexes.


After having successfully implemented this iPack, MoT/CAAs/organizations will be better equipped to:


  1. Understand the relationship between UAS regulations, conventional aircraft regulations, forthcoming RPAS provisions and with the State Safety Programme;
  2. Create an internal UAS stakeholder group, within the State, that includes those entities affected by UAS activities for coordination and internal communications;
  3. Conduct a gap analysis to identify safety deficiencies, organizational issues, operational safety risks, and emerging UAS issues;
  4. Implement a framework, rules and regulations for managing UAS activities and the supporting entities;
  5. Identify the competencies required to enable inspectors and managers to fulfill their roles and responsibilities to manage UAS operations and to build the appropriate capacities; and
  6. Set national goals through the application of safety management principles including targets and indicators, as the basis to improve safety of UAS operations and activities, for a national strategy.
