Crowded Space Drones receive first private sector Surveillance Camera Commissioner certification

Wednesday 14th October 2020

We are finally able to announce that we have become the only private sector drone organisation in the UK to so far be certified by the Surveillance Camera Commissioner for the use of drones in surveillance.

This certification has been granted following a comprehensive independent audit by IQ Verify Ltd on behalf of the Commissioner. Previous surveillance deployments were also audited to ensure historic work has complied with the law and best practice procedures.

Historically, this certification has only ever been granted to public sector organisations such as the Police and NHS, so this represents a huge leap forward in compliance for the use of private sector drones in United Kingdom airspace.

This gives our clients complete confidence in our ability to conduct lawful surveillance of all types with drones, above and beyond any other drone services provider.
