UAS Accident and Incident Reporting Regulations

Unmanned Regulations Comminity Involvement
Accident and Incident Reporting is crucial for the Safe Skies learning culture prevalent in Manned Aviation.

It will be vital that a similar non punitive culture is developed in the Unmanned Aviation industry.

The best way to learn how to prevent repeating the mistakes of others is to learn from them.

Community input to develop regulations for Unmanned Accident and Incident Reporting is now being invited by CASA.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) is seeking comments in relation to new accident and incident reporting regulations. The proposed regulations include requirements on the reporting of accidents and incidents involving UAS. More information can be found on the ATSB website:

http://www.atsb.gov.au/aviation_newregs.aspx

Comments are sought by Friday the 27th of July.

AUVS-Australia members are strongly encouraged to review the proposed regulations and to provide feedback directly to the ATSB.

AUVS-Australia in conjunction with the Australian Aerospace Industry Forum (AAIF), Certification and Regulation Working Group, Sub-Committee on UAS will coordinate an industry response to the proposed regulations. If you would like your comments to be considered as part of the industry response, please send them to AUVS-Australia Executive Director Ms. Peggy MacTavish (peggy.mactavish@auvsaustralia.org.au) by Friday the 13th of July.

More information will be made available on the AUVS-Australia website in the coming weeks.
