The Certified category covers operations that present an equivalent risk to that of manned aviation; because of this they are be subjected to the same regulatory regime (i.e. certification of the unmanned aircraft, certification of the UAS operator, licensing of the remote pilot).
UK regulations relating to the Certified category are still being developed and are not yet published.
Until unique UAS regulations are available, the principles set out in the relevant manned aviation regulations for airworthiness, operations and licensing will be used as the basis for regulating the Certified category.
The same requirements that relate to manned aircraft are applicable.
For more information refer to CAP722 – Annex C - The Certified category CAP 722
