Artic­le 29 Working Par­ty: Opi­ni­on on the use of drones

The Artic­le 29 Data Pro­tec­tion Working Par­ty has published Opi­ni­on 01/2015 of June 16, 2015 on the use of dro­nes. In view of the data pro­tec­tion risks asso­cia­ted with dro­ne ope­ra­ti­ons, it calls for the crea­ti­on of a legal frame­work for the use of dro­nes at natio­nal and Euro­pean level. A set of rules for the respon­si­ble use of dro­nes is also required.

In addi­ti­on, the group recom­mends that the pro­vi­si­ons for public video sur­veil­lan­ce be applied to the use of dro­nes if they are equip­ped with recor­ding devices, and that elec­tro­nic licen­se pla­tes or the publi­ca­ti­on of dro­ne ope­ra­tors on a web­site would be useful for iden­ti­fy­ing dro­ne operators.

In the case of lar­ge public events, the use of dro­nes should also be poin­ted out.
