Following last week’s announcement from the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission that owners of unregistered unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) would face harsh penalties if they did not register their devices.
1,300 such devices have been registered with the proper authorities in the first week.
The secretary General of the NBTC Takorn Tantasith said drone users have three options on how to register their devices.
Drones can be registered with the Civil Aviation Authority, The NBTC main office in Bangkok or its 21 provincial offices or at police stations across the kingdom.
He went on to elaborate that the exact number of drones registered so far is unclear as the 1,300 figure quoted only applies to devices registered at NBTC offices.
Takorn said that people who use unregistered drones could face fines of up to 100,000 baht or a prison sentence of up to five years or both.
