Drone reg­is­tra­tion is a re­spon­si­bil­ity for all

7 Days in Dubai - - EVENTS -

On the sub­ject of drones (Ig­no­rance could end in drone dis­as­ter, 7DAYS, Oct 31), in the UAE you can’t rely on peo­ple us­ing their com­mon sense to check reg­u­la­tions and reg­is­ter drones them­selves. Peo­ple will do what­ever they want and I can see more air­port clo­sures com­ing un­less some­thing is done. Maybe mak­ing sure all drones im­ported are fit­ted with a geo-fenc­ing chip and the im­porter has to reg­is­ter their im­ported drones them­selves is the an­swer. When they sell the drone on, the im­porter is re­spon­si­ble for trans­fer­ring reg­is­tra­tion to the re­tailer, the re­tailer is re­spon­si­ble for trans­fer­ring the reg­is­tra­tion to the cus­tomer. If you give a drone as a gift, it should be your re­spon­si­bil­ity to trans­fer the reg­is­tra­tion to the user. Fail­ure to do so leaves per­son who ‘for­got’ to trans­fer the reg­is­tra­tion li­able for any fine … and a fine for clos­ing DXB would be very sub­stan­tial! Make peo­ple re­spon­si­ble UAE
