The Commission has launched a stakeholder survey ondraftInternational Guiding Principles for organisations developing advanced AI systems, which have been agreed by G7 ministers for stakeholder consultation.

These principles are currently developed by G7 Members under the Hiroshima Artificial Intelligence process to set up guardrails on a global level. The eleven draft guiding principles, which cover advanced AI systems such as foundational models and generative AI, aim to promote safety and trustworthiness of the technology. On this basis, G7 members aim to compile a Code of Conduct that will provide guidance for organisations developing AI tools.

Values and Transparency Vice President Věra Jourová said: “Generative AI brings opportunities but also risks and challenges and we urgently need to shape a framework for this technology at a global level. With these principles, the EU and like-minded democracies will be equipped with the first international set of guidelines to promote an ethical and safe use of advanced AI systems and ensure universal human rights are fully respected.”

Internal Market Commissioner Thierry Breton said: “With the AI Act, the EU is the global pioneer in setting clear and proportionate rules on AI to tackle risks and promote innovation. I am pleased that the key principles of the AI Act serve as inspiration for international approaches to AI regulation and governance. This reflects Europe’s role as a global standard-setter.”

All interested parties are invited to contribute to the survey by 20 October. The feedback received will inform the EU position in the G7 process and contribute to discussions to finalise the negotiations on the guiding principles and the development of a voluntary international Code of Conduct for AI developers, to be endorsed by the G7 leaders this year.

The G7 guiding principles and voluntary Code of Conduct will complement at a global level the legally binding rules that the EU co-legislators are currently finalising under the AI Act.
