The Palimpsest of Conformity Assessment in the Proposed Artificial Intelligence Act: Nikolaos Ioannidis and Olga Gkotsopoulou

  • July 2, 2021

LSTS Researchers Nikolaos Ioannidis and Olga Gkotsopoulou published their new blogpost 'The Palimpsest of Conformity Assessment in the Proposed Artificial Intelligence Act: A Critical Exploration of Related Terminology' on the European Law Blog.

The authors briefly explore the legislator’s choice of the procedure of the conformity assessment as a means to increase trust, introduced in the proposed Act. To study this topic and highlight its complexity, they use the product compliance legislation in the European Union (EU), the proposed Artificial Intelligence Act and the GDPR, as reference points. They investigate the origins of the conformity assessment and its definition. The authors then decipher the scope of ‘conformity’ by comparing it to three other closely related terms found in the text of the proposed Act and in the GDPR: ‘compliance’, ‘impact’, and ‘accountability’.
