MedTech Europe feedback on the European Commission’s proposal for a Directive on Liability rules for Artificial Intelligence (The Artificial Intelligence Liability Directive – AILD)
MedTech Europe is the European association of medical technology manufacturers, including digital health products that fall under the scope of our sectoral regulations, some of which would fall under the scope of the proposed Artificial Intelligence Liability Directive (AILD).
MedTech Europe supports the European Commission’s objective to ensure that victims of damage caused with the involvement of AI have the same effective compensation as victims of damage caused by other technologies.
However, we also believe that it is important to find a balance between this objective and ensuring legal certainty in European civil justice systems as well as trying to avoid creating an innovation-stifling environment.
