COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2021/1166

of 15 July 2021

amending Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/947 as regards postponing the date of application for standard scenarios for operations executed in or beyond the visual line of sight

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Whereas:

  1. Pursuant to Article 23(4) of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/947(2), as from 2 December 2021, Member States may only accept declarations made by UAS operators in accordance with Article 5(5) of that Implementing Regulation for an operation complying with one of the two standard scenarios set out in Appendix 1 to the Annex of that Implementing Regulation.
  2. Harmonized standards are considered by UAS manufacturers as an important instrument to enable them to place compliant UAS on the market.
  3. However, some of the harmonised standards addressing the requirements applicable to UAS of classes C5 and C6 will not be available by 2 December 2021.
  4. It is therefore necessary to postpone the date of application in order to ensure that the harmonised standards addressing the requirements applicable to UAS of classes C5 and C6 are available before Member States may only accept declarations for operations compliant with the standard scenarios established by Appendix 1 to the Annex of Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/947. Until then Member States should be able to accept declarations made by UAS operators in accordance with Article 5(5) of that Implementing Regulation, based on national standard scenarios or equivalent.
  5. The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the committee established by Article 127 of Regulation (EU) 2018/1139,
