IOS Releases Draft Of First Global UAV Standards Written 27 November 2018

Engadget reports that the International Organization for Standardization (IOS) has “released the first draft set of global standards for drone use.” The draft suggests “no-fly zones around airports and other restricted areas, along with geofencing measures to keep drones away from sensitive locations.” The new standards also encourage UAV operators to respect privacy, and they recommend a human intervention fail-safe feature for all UAVs. The IOS “additionally suggested that training, flight logging and maintenance requirements should be in place, along with data protection rules.” The IOS is accepting public comment on the standards until January 21, “and they are likely to be adopted in 2019.” The IOS “hopes they’ll become best practices for drone manufacturers and operators across the planet.”
