On 21 April 2021, the European Commission (EU-COM) published a proposed Regulation laying down harmonized rules for artificial intelligence (Artificial Intelligence Act). The aim of the draft is to create a regulatory framework for artificial intelligence (AI) systems. Within the framework of the so-called horizontal regulation, all companies in the European Economic Area (EEA) that use artificial intelligence systems will be affected, with the exception of smaller companies. The regulatory proposal focuses on so-called high-risk AI systems.
