The European Union’s Artificial Intelligence Act, or EU AI Act, is the first major regulation on artificial intelligence. The Act affects organizations operating within the EU, whether they are providers (those developing AI systems), users (referred to as “deployers” within the Act), importers, distributors, or manufacturers of AI systems. 

Zaviant’s team of experts helps international clients create an action plan and meet all compliance requirements of the EU AI Act.

What is The EU AI Act?

Proposed in April 2021 by the European Commission, the EU AI Act was unanimously endorsed by EU member states in March 2024. It addresses major risks of AI including bias, discrimination, and privacy violations and classifies technologies based on their risk level—unacceptable risk, high risk, limited risk, and minimal risk—with corresponding regulatory requirements. 

High-risk AI technologies, such as those used in critical infrastructure, education, employment, and law enforcement, are subject to rigorous testing, documentation, and oversight under the Act. On the other hand, minimal-risk systems (like spam filters) face little to no regulation.

Why is The EU AI Act Important?

The EU AI Act ensures the safe and ethical development and deployment of AI technologies within the European Union. By categorizing AI systems based on risk level, the Act aims to protect citizens’ rights and prevent harmful practices. Furthermore, by providing clear guidelines, the EU AI Act promotes responsible innovation, enabling organizations to develop solutions while addressing ethical dilemmas. 

Finally, it’s important for organizations to realize that failing to comply can result in costly fines, ranging from €35 million or 7 percent of global revenue to €7.5 million or 1.5 percent of revenue, depending on the exact infringement and size of the company.

Protect Privacy Rights

Complying with the EU AI Act helps ensure your organization doesn’t infringe on the privacy rights of EU citizens.

Uphold Ethics

The EU AI Act provides a framework for upholding the delicate balance between technological innovation and ethics.

Avoid Fines

Noncompliance with the EU AI Act can cost companies millions of Euros, depending on the exact infringement and size of the company.

A Compendium for Obtaining & Retaining Cyber Insurance

It goes without saying, robust cybersecurity and data privacy measures are a necessity for doing business in this day and age. Without either, an organization’s defenses are left to luck and hope – maybe an adversary will never take notice of the wide-open gaps in your network? (The odds are not in your favor).
