At the end of February 2024, the International Association of Standardisation Organisations (IAF/ISO) decided to include the aspect of climate change and climate adaptation as a binding addition to the existing standard requirements in chapters 4.1 and 4.2. The supplementary requirement must be implemented immediately and without a transition period in all management systems. The aim of this addition is to take into account the effects of climate change in connection with achieving the desired objectives of the management system. My blog post describes topics that may become relevant for companies as a result of the decision.

Picture Mohammad Qasem

European legislators have imposed strict regulation on the digital space in recent years. In addition to the much-discussed EU IoT Act, other important regulations such as the Data Governance Act and the Data Act have come into force. The Data Act in particular has attracted special attention due to its impact on IoT device manufacturers, service providers and start-ups. The Data Act, which entered into force on 11 January 2024, will apply from September 2025. In my blog post, I discuss its objectives, effects and requirements for all stakeholders.

AI

The Artificial Intelligence Act (AI Act) was finalised at the end of 2023 after intensive negotiations between the European Parliament and the European Council. The debates were characterised by talks on the definition of AI and the categorisation of systems into risk classes. Numerous details were clarified, in particular regarding unacceptable risk (highest risk level) AI systems and high-risk AI systems. National interests and the development of certain technologies played an important role, such as the ban on real-time biometric identification in public spaces and the use of foundation models or generative AI. I will show you in this blog post what the EU AI Act looks like in detail.

AI

The European Union’s proposed AI Act will make working with artificial intelligence (AI) on a daily basis even more complex. Some potential AI applications might end up on a blacklist, while others remain untouched, but in a way, both applications use the same technology. It feels like AI roulette. The entire situation is poised to cause doubts during the idea phase of potential AI applications – namely, is my AI idea allowed? This is a question that crops up a lot at the moment.

In this blog post, we will explore how regulatory changes are not only an obligation, but can also be an opportunity for insurance companies to take a leading role in shaping a sustainable future.

Legally binding regulations and reporting obligations mean that financial service providers should contribute to developing the economy in an ecological and sustainable way, as well as usher in the new era of sustainable finance. The EU taxonomy, as a common classification system, is designed to help incentivise investors to make sustainable investments and support the shift towards a sustainable economy. In this blog post, I will briefly describe what this actually means and what needs to be taken into account.

In public tenders, proposal management encounters what are called ‘thresholds’. In public procurement law, the threshold values define the boundary between EU-wide tenders and national tenders. In 2019 in Germany, for example, the federal ministries opened over 1,200 EU-wide tenders that had a total value of €5 billion. In my blog post, I will give you a glimpse into the world of thresholds, as they were adjusted on 1 January 2022 and will remain valid for two years.
