On May 22, 2019, the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), which is part of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), published the Trump Administration’s Unified Agenda of Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions, better known as the Unified Agenda.

The Unified Agenda indicates that the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) promulgation of the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for Remote Identification of UAS is being delayed. The NPRM had been scheduled for July 2019 but is now slated for release in September 2019.

Remote ID is considered by many to be an essential piece of technology to fully integrate UAS operations into the national airspace system. Remote ID would better facilitate unmanned flight operations over people, and the development of UAS Traffic Management Systems. Remote ID is also considered an important tool for law enforcement, by reducing the number of anonymous, unaccountable UAS operations that have unknown intent, and thereby pose safety risks to the public.
