What is Drone Certification?

Drone certification is a compliance assessment process to ensure that drones meet the technical and safety requirements set out by regulation. This includes operational testing and document verification to ensure that drones comply with European directives and can be used safely.

The EU Implementing Regulation 2019/947 on the rules and procedures for the use of unmanned aircraft systems classifies UAS operations into three categories based on the level of risk: open, specific and certified. These categories are determined by the conditions of the intended operation and set out requirements that must be met in relation to the aircraft and its systems for the intended operation.

This regulation requires that aircraft and direct remote identification devices meet certain specific requirements with respect to their features and functions, in order to mitigate the risks associated with their use and protect safety in flight, privacy, protection of personal data, security and the environment. To this end, the EU Delegated Regulation 2019/945 has defined the UAS Class Identification Labels (C0 to C6).

What is a Notified Body (NoBo)?

A Notified Body (NoBo) is an organization designated by an EU country to assess the conformity of certain products before they are placed on the market. These bodies perform tasks related to the conformity assessment procedures set out in the applicable legislation when the intervention of a third party is required.

To demonstrate the competence of unmanned aircraft, they must undergo assessment procedures within the CE marking framework in order to be able to bear the corresponding class identification in each case. In this way, this type of aircraft system will be subject to balanced and proportional rules that are compatible with the safety and flexibility necessary for the development of the drone sector.
