Digital Transformation: Orgalim amendments to the AI Act

Published: 9 March 2022

Policies & Issues: Digital Transformation

Orgalim, representing Europe’s technology industries, fully supports the overall policy aim to strengthen the uptake of AI, to support investment and innovation across the EU, and to guarantee the safety and fundamental rights of people while supporting businesses. In our view, the upcoming AI Act must therefore be fundamentally streamlined and simplified by focusing more on the protection of fundamental rights and exempting already regulated areas, while at the same time creating more flexibility for risk-based, case-specific implementation of the requirements. Particularly in industrial applications, AI must not be over-regulated to ensure that we can further increase Europe’s leadership in this area.
