Standard Practice for UAS Registration and Marking (Excluding Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems)
|Standards number:||ASTM F2851-10R18|
|Keywords:||International Civil Aviation Organization; nationality markings; registration and marking; UAS; unmanned aircraft systems;|
1.1 This practice prescribes guidelines for the display of marks to indicate appropriate UAS registration and ownership for all Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) except those categorized as small UAS (sUAS) by regulatory authorities. The FAA is developing a Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) to define the term small UAS and provide regulations for these aircraft.
1.2 This practice will allow determination of nationality in cases where UAS may cross international boundaries.
1.3 This practice does not apply to sUAS. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has left the designation of sUAS to each state and the states will develop rules and regulations for sUAS.
1.4 This practice does not apply to model aircraft.
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
