European Tech Alliance Position on EP Proposed Amendments on the AI Act

Acting as developers, deployers or users of AI systems, EUTA members rely on AI to better serve their customers and improve their operations in many ways.

The EUTA welcomes the Commission’s risk-based approach to regulating AI, where transparency requirements apply to some specific AI use cases and additional obligations apply only to AI systems that present the highest risks. The EUTA agrees that this approach strikes the right balance between the protection of the EU’s fundamental values and the need to promote EU innovation in this field. It also fosters public trust that is instrumental to the development of AI in Europe.

The EUTA strongly believes that this balance must be maintained during the legislative process to ensure that EU tech companies continue to innovate and remain competitive at the global level. With this in mind, we have set out some key recommendations below for the rapporteurs of the European Parliament to take into consideration.
