DIGITALEUROPE, the Japan Business Council in Europe (JBCE) and JEITA invite you to an online workshop on 25 February, where we will discuss international standards for AI and EU-Japan cooperation on standardisation.

As like-minded partners, the EU and Japan are engaged in a crucial regulatory cooperation based on the EU-Japan Strategic Partnership Agreement and the future EU-Japan Digital Partnership. In the EU, the proposal for an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Act was released on 21st April 2021 – in parallel, the AI Governance Guideline was published on 9th July 2021 in Japan. Meanwhile, important rules on harmonized standards are under discussion in the ISO, where CEN-CENELEC and JISC play a critical role.

This workshop will be an opportunity to focus on International Standards for AI and discuss cooperation between the EU and Japan on International Standardization activities from the industry’s perspective. CEN-CENELEC/JTC 21 – a mirroring committee of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 42 – and JISC will share updates on their activity and the current status of the Harmonized Standards for AI Regulation. This will be followed by a discussion on how to collaborate over International Standardization activities. Technical experts on AI from both EU and Japanese industries will also join to share their insights.

This workshop will be followed by a joint CEN-CENELEC and JISC workshop expected next year.
