EPIC has submitted comments  to the Federal Aviation Administration, urging the agency to mandate minimum privacy standards for drone operators.
In 2012, Congress told  the Agency to implement a comprehensive plan to integrate drones into the National Airspace. Shortly after, EPIC, joined by over 100 other organizations, experts, and members of the public, petitioned  the agency to address privacy in the integration process. EPIC’s petition noted, “drones greatly increase the capacity for domestic surveillance.”
As a result, the FAA published a Notice  with proposed privacy requirements for drone operators. EPIC recommended that the FAA mandate the proposed privacy standards, which are based on Fair Information Practices, and maintain a public database of all drone operators.
