- The Czech Presidency of the Council of the European Union is on the cusp of finalizing the text for the proposed Artificial Intelligence Act, Euractiv reports. The Committee of the Permanent Representatives of the Governments of the Member States to the European Union is expected to approve the final version Nov. 18 before ministers in the Transport, Telecommunications and Energy Council sign off Dec. 6.
- Euractiv also reports the Czech Presidency made revisions to the proposed Data Act ahead of further discussion on the proposal during the Working Party on Telecommunications and Information Society's Nov. 8 meeting. The latest changes include aligning language concerning international data transfers with that found in the Data Governance Act, as well as modifications to provisions for enforcement and interoperability.
- Euractiv reports on how European Parliament may look to reshape the proposed Data Act once the proposal is moved out of the Council of the European Union. Members of European Parliament raised more than 1,000 amendments to the original draft legislation in September alongside the Parliament rapporteur's official draft review. Potential changes concern public access to private data, Internet of Things considerations, and data governance and interoperability. German MEP Angelika Niebler said the proposal needs to be "technically feasible, legally secure and financially viable and attractive."
