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.
