The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is responsible for creating and enforcing regulations related to civil aviation, including those pertaining to drones. In 2019, EASA released a new set of European drone regulations, which have since been adopted by EU member states. These regulations categorise drones into three operational categories – Open, Specific, and Certified – based on their risk level and intended usage.
As drone usage continues to grow across Europe, understanding and complying with insurance regulations is critical for responsible drone operation. By adhering to the EASA regulations and securing appropriate coverage, drone operators can minimise risk and ensure the safety of their activities.
