The Australian Government is developing a DRMS to coordinate, implement and manage nationally consistent rules on drone use relating to noise, privacy, security, environmental impacts and cultural sites.
To ensure safety, DRMS will complement CASA rules and regulations, and rules within the system will be subject to oversight to ensure that any conditions imposed do not compromise safety.
DRMS will provide a whole-of-government system to coordinate and manage rules and constraints applicable to drones, for different agencies and regulators across Commonwealth, state, territory and local governments. These rules and constraints will be guided by the following principles:
- Targeted: to address a specific risk or impact
- Outcomes focused: providing flexibility in how the risk or impact might be addressed
- Proportionate: for minimum restriction or disruption on operations needed to effectively manage the risk or impact
