Regulators are already using their existing remits to implement the AI principles. In parallel, we are reviewing their powers and remits to ensure they are fully equipped to address AI risks and opportunities in their domains.

However, in our WP response we lay out a pro-innovation case for considering targeted binding requirements on organisations developing highly capable general-purpose AI systems, to ensure they are accountable for making these technologies sufficiently safe.

Legislation should only be introduced when understanding of risks has matured, and there is clear evidence these risks cannot be effectively mitigated using voluntary measures or existing legal powers.
