NFPA is soliciting comments from all interested individuals and organizations for these robotics, and specifically asks: "Do you, or your organization, support NFPA developing a standard on UAS operation protocols and UAV operator professional qualifications?"


If the Standards Council approves the project, it is anticipated that a new NFPA Technical Committee will be established to provide expertise and a balance of interested stakeholders specific to applicable technologies and operations. If you or your organization are interested in participation on a Technical Committee to develop the proposed project, please complete our online committee members application.
