The FAA has developed a safety statement describing some of the rules, regulations, and safety tips consumers need to know when operating unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) or drones. A federal law requires manufacturers to provide a safety statement with small UAS at the time of delivery. This safety statement is intended to serve as an example manufacturers may use to satisfy that requirement.
To ensure the widest education and safest integration of UAS into the national airspace, the FAA encourages manufacturers to begin providing safety statements to their consumers immediately.
