Means of compliance (MoCs) for the design of UAS operated in SAIL III

The Airworthiness task force (AW TF), established In November 2022 under the UAS Technical Body (TeB), is developing means of compliance (MoCs) aimed at supporting, for SAIL III operations, declarations of compliance to SORA OSOs linked with UAS design, therefore under the responsibility of the UAS designer. The MoCs provided in consultation address OSOs #5, #6, #18 and #24 as per AMC 1 to Article 11 of Regulation (EU) 2019/947. A further consultation will follow, focused in particular on MoCs to OSO#3 and OSO#19-20, completing the SAIL III compliance package.

Applicants who wish to propose the application of alternative standards to those referenced by the SAIL III MoCs should contact their Competent Authority. The proposal may need to be assessed by the AW TF and, if found appropriate, may be reflected in further revisions of the MoCs.

The declarations of compliance against the MoCs shall be provided with appropriate forms that will be made available at a later stage by EASA.

Official comments to the proposed Consultation Paper are to be filed through the EASA Comment Response Tool.
