Romania authorities want UAS to be registered and insured
Romanian authorities have decided that drones that weight less than 150kgs have to be registered and insured before being used in Romania. The Romanian Ministry of Transport now issued an order to regulate the use of drones in the country. The ministerial order about “operating conditions in the national airspace of the unmanned powered civil aircrafts” appeared in The Official Journal. It will be applied until January 30, 2016.
Drones weighting more that 150kgs are generally covered by the European Union regulation whereas drones under 150kgs remain subject to national regulations.
From now on, drones of any weight more than 1kg will have to be registered and insured in order to be used in Romania.
Critics of the new order say that the government wants to stop aerial shooting of important investments as in the past years several sections of highway under construction were filmed and posted on the internet via recording by drones.
