Although it might take some time for the rules to become effective in Norway, companies should start their preparations now. Risk mitigation through internal documentation will be essential. In particular, companies offering digital products such as software should assess the potential risks their digital products might cause. Further, companies using AI systems should implement internal routines that make it easy to produce potentially requested documentation related to the AI system in case of legal claims or lawsuits.
As regards litigation and potential costs, companies should be prepared that more cases will be taken to court. Thus, companies should be well-equipped to win the case and ensure that documentation is readily available.
