    The Drone Tool Kit is designed to provide refineries and petrochemical manufacturers an understanding of the existing UAS legal framework, including the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Part 107 waiver process, so that companies may determine whether and how to seek permission to fly small UAS in the United States. It also outlines the risks to the industry as a result of the increasingly prevalent use of this technology by hobbyists, public entities, news organizations, and commercial industry, and describes what protections are available—including FAA enforcement, common law torts, and certain UAS-specific state laws.
