UAVNZ develops code of conduct for members 

The UAVNZ executive committee believes that its members are individually and collectively responsible for their conduct. As an emerging industry it is important that a reputation, built on safe flying, professionalism and collaboration, that all can be proud of, is established and maintained.  
As a result, a Code of Conduct that all members and associate members of UAVNZ must sign and adhere to has been developed.  The Code does not attempt to detail all possible behaviour but is a guiding document that describes common standards of behaviour.  The Code, which was sent to all UAVNZ members yesterday is here.
