Drone Standards Information Portal

AW-Drones project supports the ongoing EU drone regulatory process, contributing to harmonise EU drone regulation and standards. In order to do so, the project collects technical standards, rules and procedures already developed for the commercial use of drones worldwide. Then, it critically assesses their compliance to existing and foreseen regulations. This leads to the identification of a set of best practices, gaps and bottlenecks, as complete as possible, for the safe use of civilian drones in the EU.

The Drones Standards Information Portal is a powerful tool displaying, in an easily accessible fashion, the technical standards already published or under development for the commercial use of drones worldwide that the project is collecting and assessing against existing and foreseen regulations. Moreover, it contains information on standards’ maturity level, coverage of regulation, and identified gaps.

This web-based tools facilitates the risk assessment and the mitigations implementation for drones operators. Ultimately, AW-Drones will indicate which standards constitute Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) to one or more regulatory requirements. For instance, it will effectively aid UAS operators by identifying all the standards applicable to every SORA requirement.
