LAWS AND REGULATIONS
National laws and regulations
The highest level of licensing for organizations in the Netherlands is the RPAS Operator Certificate (ROC). The ROC is granted to an organization when a strict set of requirements is met and it provides the most operational capabilities. However, the lead times are long and the costs relatively high. Vortex Technology Services helps you to get an overview of the impact on your organization and offers various services to get you operational as soon as possible.
As of January 1, 2022, any flight with drones will be covered by European legislation. This means that your organization, personnel and equipment must comply with new requirements and standards. Which requirements apply to you depends mainly on the category in which your operation falls. There are 3 categories:
- Open (low risk, limited operational capabilities)
- Specific (high risk, many operational possibilities)
- Certified (very high risk, manned aviation standards)
Together with you, we look for the best category for your organization. We draw up a step-by-step plan and provide an overview of the costs, required training and certifications and we give advice on the most suitable category for your organization.
