in brief

The new ISO 42001 standard, also referred to as the Artificial Intelligence Management System (AIMS), is a groundbreaking framework designed to address the rapid development and adoption of AI technologies across various industries. Published in 2023, this standard provides a structured approach for organisations to establish, implement, maintain, and continually improve their AI management systems. Its primary focus is on ensuring that AI systems are developed and used in a trustworthy, ethical, and socially responsible manner. 

Key Aspects of ISO 42001:

Trust and Ethics in AI: ISO 42001 emphasises the need for AI to be reliable, fair, transparent, and overall trustworthy. It tackles ethical and social concerns associated with AI technologies.

Multidisciplinary Approach: Implementing an AIMS under ISO 42001 requires a comprehensive approach involving various organisational departments, including legal, privacy, operations, marketing, R&D, sales, HR, IT, and risk management.

Certification and Compliance: The standard allows organisations to get certified after the successful completion of an audit, demonstrating their commitment to responsible AI implementation. This includes considerations for security, safety, fairness, transparency, and AI system quality.

Integration with Other Standards: ISO 42001 is designed to integrate with existing Management System Standards (MSS), such as ISO 27001 (information security), ISO 27701 (privacy), and ISO 9001 (quality), enhancing the effectiveness of these systems in relation to AI.

Structure and Controls: The structure of ISO 42001 is somewhat similar to ISO 27001, featuring specific clauses and an Annex listing controls related to AI policies, internal organisation, AI system lifecycle, impact analysis, data management, and use of AI systems. These controls are not mandatory but serve as a reference for organisations.

Risk Management and Objectives: The standard includes provisions for managing risks associated with AI use, focusing on areas such as fairness, security, safety, privacy, and robustness. It also outlines potential organisational objectives and risk sources related to AI.

Global Impact and Legislation: ISO 42001 aligns with broader legislative efforts, such as the EU's comprehensive AI legislation, which aims to regulate AI use and ensure responsible adoption.

Ongoing Development and Evolution: Given the dynamic nature of AI, ISO 42001 is expected to evolve continuously to address emerging challenges and advancements in the field.
