Abstract:The use of civilian drones has been increasing in the last decade and a lot of concerns have been raised since EU regulation seems not to cover all of the aspects that the use of such drones implies. Drone regulation is a field where International, European and national law is applicable. Since many experts outlined many issues concerning the usage of civilian drones in the European Union, it is therefore worth analyzing the current regulatory framework on this issue. To this end, this paper provides a clear overview of the regulatory framework and identifies the gaps in legislation with regards to the privacy risks and personal data protection that arise from the use of RPAS. In addition to this, a clear distinction between the terms “privacy” and “data protection” will be made, as these two concepts are usually confused by the public. This paper focuses on the use of civilian drones, protection of privacy and personal data of individuals and investigates to what extent the current EU regulatory framework for civilian drones respects the human rights protection standards such as privacy and data protection.
