We are pleased to announce that Kazakhstan has become the first country in Central Asia to join JARUS. In a meeting held by the Aviation Administration of Kazakhstan, representatives from the Civil Aviation Committee and various unmanned aviation organizations gathered to discuss the vital role of unmanned aviation in Kazakhstan’s development and the significance of collaboration with JARUS.
During the meeting, a signing ceremony took place, officially marking the accession of the Aviation Administration of Kazakhstan to JARUS. The document was signed by LIU Hao, Secretary General of JARUS, and Catalin Radu, Director General of the Aviation Administration of Kazakhstan JSC.
Catalin Radu emphasized the historic nature of this event, stating, “For the first time in Kazakhstan and Central Asia, a letter of accession to an international organization for the regulation of unmanned aircraft systems is being signed, making Kazakhstan the first country to introduce rules for UAS operations.”
To further advance the unmanned aviation industry, a seminar on the regulation of unmanned aviation in Kazakhstan was held as part of the meeting. The seminar facilitated discussions on topics related to regulatory harmonization and the development of unmanned aviation systems. Attendees examined the current state of the industry, identified challenges and opportunities, and reviewed existing legislation and proposed amendments.
