At the Amsterdam Drone Week, drone experts from cross the globe came together during the High Level Conference on Drones, which was organised by EASA and the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management.
Earlier this year, EASA prepared the European drone regulations. The European Commission is expected to accept this regulation in the first six months of 2019. During the presentations at EASA High Level Conference will be discussed how these regulations improve the development of the European drone market and how to establish safe operations and concerning the privacy and security laws.
Patrick Ky, Executive Director of EASA: “Thanks to the joint efforts performed by EASA and the European Commission with the extensive support from the Member States and stakeholders we have created the foundation for EU wide rules for drone operations. As this industry is rapidly expanding it is important for us to anticipate market developments and be prepared for change. Events like this High Level Conference on Drones and the Amsterdam Drone Week enable us to look at new technologies, products and businesses. It’s a way to engage with the drone community at large to exchange experiences and share our visions.”
