 Provider A natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that develops an AI system or a general-purpose AI model or that has an AI system or a general-purpose AI model developed and places it on the market or puts the AI system into service under its own name or trademark, whether for payment or free of charge. placing on the market or putting into service AI systems “AI system” is a machine-based system designed to operate with varying levels of autonomy and that may exhibit adaptiveness after deployment and that, for explicit or implicit objectives, infers, from the input it receives, how to generate outputs such as predictions, content, recommendations, or decisions that can influence physical or virtual environments;
[Article 3(1) – EU AI Act]
ISO/IEC 22989:— defines an AI system as an “engineered system that generates outputs such as content, forecasts, recommendations or decisions for a given set of human defined objectives”. In other words, models that perform actions that require a form of intelligence.

Prohibited AI Practices (1/2)

Question 5/11

Does your AI system perform any of the following actions?

Mark only one box:

  • Exploits any of the vulnerabilities of a natural person or a specific group of persons due to their age, disability or a specific social or economic situation, with the objective, or the effect, of materially distorting their behaviour
  • Categorises individually natural persons based on their biometric data to deduce or infer their race, political opinions, trade union membership, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life or sexual orientation;
  • Deploys subliminal techniques beyond a person’s consciousness or purposefully manipulative or deceptive techniques, with the objective to or the effect of materially distorting the behaviour of a person or a group of persons by appreciably impairing their ability to make an informed decision, thereby causing them to take a decision that that they would not have otherwise taken

  • Social scoring of natural persons or groups of persons that leads to the detrimental or unfavourable treatment of certain natural persons or groups of persons a)in social contexts that are unrelated to the contexts in which the data was originally generated or collected and/or b)that is unjustified or disproportionate to their social behaviour or its gravity
  • Creating or expanding facial recognition databases using untargeted image scaping
  • Assess or predicts the risk of a natural person to commit a criminal offense, based solely on the profiling of a natural person or on assessing their personality traits and characteristics (does not apply to systems used to support the human assessment of the involvement of a person in a criminal activity, which is already based on objective and verifiable facts directly linked to a criminal activity)
  • Infers emotions of a natural person in the areas of workplace and education institutions


Prohibited AI Practices (2/2)

Question 6/11

Is your system a ‘real-time’ remote biometric identification system used in publicly accessible spaces for the purpose of law enforcement?

Mark only one box:
  • remote biometric identification system: an AI system for the purpose of identifying natural persons, without their active involvement, typically at a distance through the comparison of a person’s biometric data with the biometric data contained in a reference database
  • real-time remote biometric identification system: a remote biometric identification system, whereby the capturing of biometric data, the comparison and the identification all occur without a significant delay, comprising not only instant identification, but also limited short delays in order to avoid circumvention
  • ‘law enforcement’ means activities carried out by law enforcement authorities or on their behalf for the prevention, investigation, detection or prosecution of criminal offences or the execution of criminal penalties, including safeguarding against and preventing threats to public security



Real-time remote biometric identification system

Question 7/11
