About Drone REGIM

At the RPAS CivOps 2019 conference in Madrid, Spain on 23 & 24 January 2019, the conference delegates agreed on the formulation of the «Madrid Declaration». In the context of the new European Union (EU) drone regulation, and with the objective to contribute to European Union harmonization relative to the implementation of the EU drone regulation on a national level, the representatives of the European drone communities present at the conference stated their intent to endeavour to coordinate, cooperate, and share knowledge & experience.

The objective of this community action is to create a structure & work methodology permitting to federate European drone community members [with a focus on Small- & Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs)] in multi-national working groups with the intent to produce consensually agreed guidance documents, contribute to existing standards efforts, and, in coordination with National Aviation Authorities (NAAs), define consensually agreed recommendations on topics identified by the current drone community as being urgently required.

Drone REGIM brings together the following competencies: aeronautical information services, air navigation service providers, consulting services, drone operators, drone producers (systems), drone-related producers (sub-systems), flight schools, legal services, qualified entities, regulators, research & science, specialized media, technology clusters, test & demonstration ranges.

In the context of the implementation of the European Union’s new drone regulation, the purpose of Drone REGIM is to:

  1. a) Address regulatory-related matters that are the responsibility of the individual EU Member States;
  2. b) Contribute to the harmonization of the national approaches concerning these matters, taking relevant existing documents & best practices into account;
  3. c) Contribute to speeding up the European harmonization process;
  4. d) Propose a work methodology geared to SMEs (work principally online; minimize travel).
