AI Standards watch: standards relevant to the proposed AI Act


In December 2023, the European Union reached an agreement on the European law on Artificial Intelligence (AI), the AI ​​Act. To facilitate the adoption of the legislation and compliance with it, the European Commission also published a standardization request which should guide the development of European standards in support of the AI ​​Act. The training will explore the AI ​​standardization landscape and its links with the proposed regulatory framework. Particular attention will be given to the work of the European standardization committee, CEN/CLC JTC 21 Artificial Intelligence, which will be responsible for the development of the European standards in support of the legislation. In addition, the training will cover certain international standards, which are considered important in this frame. Thus, participants will be able to learn more about relevant standardization activities and, if necessary, plan their involvement in standards’ development.
