Argentina - New regulation issued on drones On 15 July 2015, Resolution No. 527/2015 (the “Resolution”) was enacted by the National Civil Aviation Administration ("ANAC"). ANAC is the competent authority to regulate civil aviation activities within the territory of Argentina. The Resolution sets forth the requirements and conditions for the use and operation of unmanned aerial vehicles, or “UAVs” (commonly referred to as “Drones”). The requirements include, among others, limitations on the use of Drones within certain areas and/or heights, obligation to maintain permanent visual contact with the Drone, and registration of the Drone under the corresponding registry. In addition, owners of Drones will need to obtain a psychophysiological certificate and an insurance for damages caused by the Drone. The Regulation also classified Drones into the following three categories: (i) small Drones (up to 10 kg); (ii) intermediary Drones (between 10 kg and 150 kg); and (iii) big Drones (over 150 kg). Certain exceptions are contemplated for the use of small drones with recreational purposes. The Resolution will come into force on 12 November 2015.
