Council of Europe’s artificial intelligence expert committee CAHAI adopts feasibility study on the development of AI legal standards


On December 21st, the Council of Europe’s committee of experts on artificial intelligence (CAHAI) adopted during its 3rd plenary meeting from 15 to 17 December 2020 a feasibility study of an international legal instrument on artificial intelligence and its potential elements.

This feasibility study will be presented to the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, representing its 47 member states, in 2021. The study invites the Committee of Ministers to instruct the CAHAI to focus its work in the future on the elaboration of the specific elements of an appropriate legal framework, which could include a binding legal instrument, as well as non-binding instruments as appropriate, in parallel with progress that can be made on sectoral instruments.

The Ad-hoc Committee on Artificial Intelligence (CAHAI) was created on 11 September 2019 by the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers in order to examine the feasibility and potential elements on the basis of broad multi-stakeholder consultations, of a legal framework for the development, design and application of artificial intelligence, based on Council of Europe’s standards on human rights, democracy and the rule of law.
