The European Parliament announced, on February 13, 2024, that its Internal Market and the Civil Liberties, Justice, and Home Affairs (LIBE) Committees endorsed the provisional agreement on the Artificial Intelligence Act (the AI Act). The Internal Market and LIBE committees approved, in a 71 to eight vote, the result of negotiations with the EU Member States.

  • codes of practice, which will apply nine months after the entry into force;
  • general-purpose AI rules including governance, which will apply 12 months after the entry into force; and
