EU Artificial Intelligence Act

On Friday 21 April 2022 the European Parliament and Council published an explanatory memorandum accompanying the proposal for a Regulation laying down harmonised rules on Artificial Intelligence (Artificial Intelligence Act).

The European Commission published a proposal for a regulation on AI in the form of the Artificial Intelligence Act (AIA) in April 2021. The goal of this act is to “to lay down a uniform legal framework in particular for the development, marketing and use of artificial intelligence in conformity with EU values.”

Within the proposal from the Commission, we see the following themes:

  • Establishing a harmonised risk-based approach that differentiates between uses of AI (unacceptable, high, and low risk)
  • Governance (creation of a national competent market surveillance authority to regulate the new rules)
  • Market monitoring and surveillance (evaluating the effects of the proposal)
  • Budgetary implications (evaluating the ability to use sufficient resources for the success of the regulations)

On 21 April 2022 , the Parliament published their draft report, which represents their opinion (based on the AIDA report) on the AIA. The deadline for submission of amendments is 18 May 2022. The amendments will be considered in June, and compromise amendments are tentatively scheduled for September. The VPHi and the Avicenna Alliance are preparing amendments.
