Taiwan’s laws administering the permitting and operation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and camera drones are scheduled for an update in September, as indicated by the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) July 23.

The new measures will serve as an acceptable administrative structure with a facilitated reaction to the expanding number of drones showing up in the skies over Taiwan. Stricter regulations are forced on aircraft weighing roughly over 55 lbs or 25 kilograms, including obligatory accreditation for the vehicle and pilots.

Likewise, recreational models measuring under 55 lbs or 25 kilograms are governed by the power of separate neighborhood governments.

CAA Director-General Lin Tyh-ming said draft amendments ought to be finished no later than mid-September, in time for accommodation to the Legislature in the forthcoming session.

“Based on similar legislation in the EU and U.S., the proposed regulatory framework will complement the present one by providing clearer definitions for different types of drones and guidelines on law enforcement.”

Yeh Shin-cheng, who is in charge of organizing the administration’s reaction, said working airspace will likewise be characterized under these new rules.

“UAVs and drones are usually flown at no more than 100 meters above ground level. We will work with international norms in this regard and allow local governments leeway in making adjustments based on regional considerations and needs.”

As indicated by Yeh, UAV innovation has an extensive variety of uses like scholarly research, airborne photography, and law implementation

“But the issue must be addressed as one relating to homeland security, taking into consideration national and public safety while upholding user rights and ROC law,” he added. (YHC-JSM)
