Key insights from the political agreement on the AI Act

The legislative process for the EU AI Act began in April 2021 and reached an important milestone during the final political trilogue from 6 December to 8 December 2023. The lengthy negotiations successfully addressed numerous highly disputed issues, including some that had only emerged in the past few months.

Currently we do not have a consolidated version of the AI Act, and there is no official statement definitively addressing the recent agreement. However, we have compiled a guide that consolidates information from various reports. It is important to approach this guide with caution, as it is based on diverse sources.

The guide offers a summary of the essential components within the agreement and evaluates its potential implications.

The key elements covered in the guide are:

  • Which AI systems will be covered by the AI Act?
  • What are the obligations for all AI systems?
  • How will the AI Act regulate high-risk AI systems?
  • What AI systems will be prohibited under the AI Act?
  • How is General Purpose AI regulated in the AI Act?
  • Is the AI Act applicable to open-source models?
  • Is copyright covered by the AI Act?
  • Does the AI Act require content moderation? How does it relate to the DSA?
  • What are the penalties for violations of the AI Act?
  • When will the AI Act be applicable?
