The Office of the President invites comments on a proposed new policy for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). The policy is to establish minimum standards for the safe use and operation of UAS and Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (SUAS), including drones and model aircraft, on any University location or at any authorized University activity. This policy requires that all UAS operations are performed in a manner that mitigates risks to safety, security, and privacy, and ensures compliance with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 (Public Law 112–95) and all applicable laws.

The draft policy can be found here.

If you would like to comment, please send your comments to PolicyStaffComments@ucsf.edu. The deadline for employee comments is no later than 5 p.m., Friday, April 14.
