The Civil Aviation Authority published a revised Dronecode on 24 November 2016 outlining the rules for non-commercial drone users in the UK.

This was followed on 1 December 2016 by an announcement from the EU Council that a general approach had been agreed on revised common safety rules for civil aviation, including a draft regulation containing the first ever rules for civil unmanned aircraft.
