Supervisory Perspective on Global AI Governance (Discussion Paper)

This brief discussion paper outlines how national and regional AI supervisors should be involved in the global AI governance framework. The paper is written in conjunction to the interim report of the UN SG's AI Advisory Body.

The contribution provided by this paper is based upon the national experience in the Netherlands, where since 2023 the Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens has a role as National Coordinating AI Supervisor (NCAIS). 

In the Netherlands, the NCAIS focusses on the risks of AI on fundamental rights and public values through bi-annual risk reporting, supervisory cooperation and the development of guidance and supervisory policy perspectives.

Based upon the experience as NCAIS, we advocate the establishment of a global AI institution that facilitates risk monitoring, standard setting, knowledge exchange and peer review on the international level.
