A new edition of CAP 1789 has been published by the UK’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) after EU implementation was delayed.
CAA publishes a new edition of CAP 1789
The document, titled: “CAP1789: The New European UAS Regulations: General Outline” had to be updated after the European Union Unmanned Aircraft Systems Implementing Regulation was delayed.
Due to the disruption caused by the COVID19 outbreak, the EC published a further amendment to the IR on 5 June 2020 as Regulation (EU) 2020/746 which postponed the applicability date of the IR until 31 December 2020, as well as adjusting a number of other relevant dates in the future.
As part of the ‘Brexit Treaty’ the UK is required by international law to implement any elements of EU regulation that come into force and become applicable within the ‘transition period’ (to 31 December 2020).
Therefore, the IR will become applicable within the UK on Thursday 31 December 2020.

The European Commission has delayed the applicability date of the European Union Unmanned Aircraft Systems Implementing Regulation 2019/947 until 31 December, which is when it will now become applicable in the UK.
