Last-minute changes to EU Council’s AI Act text ahead of general approach

November 14, 2022

The Council of the European Union updated the text for the proposed Artificial Intelligence Act with new revisions according to this article from Euractiv.

Revisions were made in these areas: considerations for the insurance industry, national authority over AI governance, and further definition of what is (and is not) critical infrastructure.

New language includes that the AI Act "does not affect the competencies, tasks, powers and independence of the national authorities in charge of supervising the protection of fundamental rights, including equality bodies and data protection authorities."

The EU council is planning to convene again regarding the AI Act on Dec. 6.
