At the time of filing, this trade mark was owned by WePark Pty Ltd. WePark Pty Ltd is a company which has created a set of standards and processes for testing drone technology for potential defects and hazards.

For Product to meet the Standard, the Applicant must submit the Product for testing in compliance with either the publicly available process, or in accordance with the relevant process for their workplace.

Testing to meet the Standard is undertaken by Certifiers for each Product type.

The Standard for each product type contains detailed instructions and procedures for how the particular product is to be assessed. Once meeting the Standard the Product will be certified with the certification marks and certified as:

  • free from major defects;
  • safe to operate; and
  • not exhibiting any behaviour that is contrary to the behaviour detailed in the underlying specifications set out in the assessment specificatins.

Attached is an example testing and compliance plan that a product must conform with and pass in order to obtain certification under the Standard. (Attachment 1: Drone Tag & Test Product Certification Assessment). In order to successfully pass test plans, a product must pass all mandatory test cases and any optional test cases that are applicable to the particular product based on the functionality it supports (as set out in the Drone Tag & Test Product Certification Assessment). In addition to the explicit functionality being checked by the test cases, the submitted product must not exhibit any behaviour that is contrary to the behaviour detailed in the underlying specifications in order to be considered to have passed a test plan.

Products are certified for 6 months or 40 hours of flight time, whichever occurs first (or other period as granted at WePark 's discretion) and stated on the certification notice, after which certification must be renewed by undertaking a new assessment and paying the then current Assessment Fees.

Assessment Fees will vary depending on the type of Product tested, and are as set out on the publicly available process, or in accordance with the relevant process for the applicable workplace.
