ALTER, the first Notified Body in Europe to assess conformity to drones

Alter Technology has obtained ENAC accreditation to provide conformity according to the European rules for drones intended to be operated in the open category and remote identification add-ons.

By obtaining this accreditation, Alter Technology becomes the first Notified Body in Europe for Regulation 2019/945. This achievement results from a long effort that has required the development of advanced flight test systems, test methods, and process innovation. The requirements aim to ensure the safety of drones placed on the European market.

Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/945 on unmanned aircraft systems and third-country operators of unmanned aircraft systems.

This Regulation lays down the requirements for the design and manufacture of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) intended to operate under the rules and conditions defined in Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/947 and remote identification add-ons. It also describes the types of UAS whose design, production, and maintenance shall be subject to certification. It also establishes rules on making UAS intended for use in the ‘open’ category and remote identification add-ons available on the market and their free movement in the Union. Finally, it lays down rules for third-country UAS operators when they conduct a UAS operation according to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/947 within the single European sky airspace.
