China’s Interim Regulations on Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Flight Management took effect on Monday, outlining registration requirements, permissible flight altitudes, and UAV operator responsibilities. UAV operators are now required to log in to the civil aviation department’s website to register their UAVs with their real names and affix the generated QR code on the UAV body. Flying without real-name registration is henceforth a violation, subject to a fine of between RMB 200 ($28) and RMB 20,000 ($2820). Micro UAVs are allowed to fly below 50 meters, while light UAVs are restricted to altitudes below 120 meters. Additionally, parents or guardians may be fined if minors operate micro or light UAVs without adult supervision. [IThome, in Chinese]
