EU AI Act : CoESS welcomes improvements proposed by Parliament and Council

In a new position paper published today, CoESS congratulates the European Parliament and Council for the crucial improvements tabled to the European Commission proposal for an EU AI Act. Comments and recommendations are made on matters related to legal certainty, human oversight, and the need to balance adequacy and added value when introducing new obligations for deployers of high-risk AI.

With the position paper, developed under the leadership of the CoESS AI Expert Group and Monitoring & Remote Surveillance Committee, CoESS highlights key proposals of both institutions, which are recommended to be kept in a final agreement or which CoESS believes require further clarification or a more balanced approach that promotes innovation, security and legal certainty for companies integrating AI in their future services.

These proposals reflect the recommendations of CoESS’ position paper on the EU AI Act proposal from December 2021.

The new position paper can be found here and shall support the inter-institutional negotiations on a final legal text in the trilogues taking place in the upcoming months.
