The UC Center of Excellence on Unmanned Aircraft System Safety provides the following non-binding guidance to assist in the implementation of the Presidential Unmanned Aircraft System Policy (Policy), including the management of UAS Activity at University ocations and the development of Location Specific Policies or Procedures regarding the use of UAS at University locations.

The guidance is intended to 1) elaborate on the current regulatory environment and compliance requirements, 2) describe suitable means of compliance with the UC UAS Policy and 3) provide example language that may be used in location specific policy or procedures or in communication.

To the extent of any inconsistencies between the minimum requirements set in the UC UAS Policy or this guidance document and any applicable regulation, the regulatory requirements govern.

This document is expected to continue to be revised and updated regularly as a result of regulatory changes, improvements to safety best practices and user feedback.
