EU: Parliament Committees to vote on draft AI Act report

The European Parliament announced, on 17 April 2023, that the Internal Market and Consumer Protection ('IMCO') and the Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs ('LIBE') Committees will vote, on 26 April 2023, on the draft report on the Proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council Laying Down Harmonised Rules on Artificial Intelligence ('the AI Act'). In particular, the Parliament highlighted that, following thorough negotiations on compromises, the IMCO and LIBE co-rapporteurs' draft report includes substantial amendments to the AI Act, such as a ban on predictive policing, additions to the list of stand-alone artificial intelligence ('AI') categorised as high-risk, as well as a strong and inclusive role for the new AI Office.

Notably, the Parliament outlined that a stronger alignment with the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) ('GDPR') is proposed.

Lastly, the Parliament pointed out that the draft report is expected to be tabled for vote in the Parliament plenary in May.
