The creation of a drone legislation is currently being handled by the Minister.
« I want to guarantee the safety and privacy of the public. I also want to analyse the requests and needs of the industry, but I also want to encourage the private sector in Belgium to innovate and develop its activities. It’s also necessary to catch up with the legislative part compared to other European neighbouring countries, » said Jacqueline Galant. In addition, she will also look into practical assignments for the common interest in which drones can have a positive contribution.
Since her official introduction, the Minister consulted various stakeholders in order to listen to their expectations and to define point of particular interest. « Based on these consultations and in collaboration with my administration, I will now work on an efficient legal framework.»
The Minister wishes to act fast, but not hasty.
