On 12th June 2018, The British Standards Institution (BSI) published BS 9122, a draft document calling for public comment regarding a new standard of competence for drone users. This new standard is voluntary and does not replace the current Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) legislation but what it does aim to achieve is to help organisations, who employ drone pilots, to set higher standards for their employees and for drone pilots themselves to have a standard to measure up against. This is being done with the hope of improving standards across the ever-growing UK drone industry. With the drone service industry picking up pace, this is certainly a step in the right direction for the UK.
We’ll be following this closely.
