Frequently Asked Questions

What's the White Paper for?

Our aim is to deliver industry backed guidance on the relationship between standards and regulations. 

This thorny issue has dogged the drone industry for years with many not understanding the purpose or value of standards and preferring to focus on the development of regulations.  This has led to regulators ignoring standards and standards makers operating in isolation. 

This paper aims to clear the air, clarify the different types of standards and explore the benefits and pitfalls associated with the use of standards in support of regulations.
