There are more and more instances of UAVs being used in breach of the CAA guidelines, however ARPAS-UK is here to promote the safe application of UAV industry and not to police it.
If you have concerns regarding a specific UAV operation in the first instance we would suggest that the latest list of UAS Operators with CAA Permission for Commercial Operations is consulted. A link to the latest list can be found on the CAA website here.
(Please note that this list is not 100% accurate as it is only updated every 2-3 months.)
It should also be noted that although you may not have permission to conduct commercial operations in certain circumstances, for example within 50 metres in a congested area or at night, some operators may have additional permissions and controls in place.
The CAA has a dedicated email address for concerns to be sent to. The email address is UAVEnquiries@caa.co.uk

If no deal for leaving the EU is agreed between the EU and the UK, changes to the reporting of Mandatory and Voluntary Occurrence Reports would be required. These changes are dependent on the reporting method you currently use. This page sets out what you need to consider to prepare for this eventuality. Regulation EU (No) 376/2014 has been translated into UK legislation, the existing requirements on who reports and what’s reported under this regulation remain unaffected.
