This document, when used together with ISO 16119-1, specifies the requirements and the means for verification of the design and performance of unmanned aerial spraying systems (UASS) mounted on unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) for application of plant protection products (PPPs) in agriculture, forestry, turf and amenity areas, with regard to minimising the potential risk of environmental contamination during use, including misuse foreseeable by the UASS manufacturer.
The requirements of this document take precedence over those of ISO 16119-1. The ISO 23117 series does not cover human safety aspects of UASS’s or safety aspects concerning UAS’s, remote pilots or bystanders.
This document is not applicable to UASS mounted on UASs with a maximum take-off mass greater than 150 kg.
This document is not applicable to UASSs manufactured before the date of its publication.
