Artificial intelligence (AI) has transformed our daily and business lives in unimaginable ways. However, its rapid growth has also raised concerns about its ethical use and potential risks.

The E.U. has approved in extremis a new regulation on AI under the Spanish Presidency of the E.U. Council, which is expected to come into full force by the end of 2026. In this article, we provide you with essential information about the new regulation, and how it could impact your business or affect you as a consumer.

New European artificial intelligence (AI) regulation – key aspects

The regulation classifies AI systems according to their level of risk, paying particular attention to those of high risk to ensure security and privacy. In addition, the regulation significantly strengthens the protection of personal data, ensuring that the privacy and security of information is maintained at all times.

Another crucial aspect is its encouragement of innovation and development in the field of AI. While imposing restrictions to ensure respect for fundamental rights, it also boosts development for research purposes, paving the way for new technological breakthroughs. It establishes a governance framework to ensure that companies and entities using AI are accountable and comply with established standards, creating an environment of trust and security for everyone.

While the regulation will come into force in 2026, it will be implemented in phases: a European Office for Artificial Intelligence (EOIA) will be set up immediately, coordinating the use of the technology among national authorities. The regulation also provides for fines ranging from €35 million, up to €7.5 million.
