The regulation on real-name registration of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) for civil use released by Civil Aviation Administration of China has been officially carried out on June 1. The regulation requires that holders of UAV whose maximum take-off weight is over 250 grams should complete real name registration. UAV holders have to complete the registration by August 31, 2017.
However, Beijing Youth Daily reporters found that the registration system failed to recognize the wrong personal information.
According to the regulation, UAV should be tagged with registration label by the system, including the registration number and QR code. The registration also helps to trace the lost UAV. Damage and transfer of the UAV are also required to report to the system.
On the registration page, users are required to submit information of the UAV holder and the company. New users have to fill in their real name, mobile phone number, email address, gender, living address and the identity type and number.
Reporters tried submitting fake information in the system and they found that the registration was approved even if the name and ID number was fudged.
Spokesperson of the Civil Aviation Administration of China said that currently the system has not been connected to the system of Public Security Bureau. They are working on communicating with the Public Security Bureau to involve the UAV registration into the system to for identity verification.
