AI RMF Development

NIST is developing a framework to better manage risks to individuals, organizations, and society associated with artificial intelligence (AI). The NIST AI Risk Management Framework (AI RMF) is intended for voluntary use and to improve the ability to incorporate trustworthiness considerations into the design, development, use, and evaluation of AI products, services, and systems.

The Framework is being developed through a consensus-driven, open, transparent, and collaborative process that includes workshops and other opportunities to provide input. It is intended to build on, align with, and support AI risk management efforts by others. 

A second draft of the AI RMF was made available on August 18, 2022, for feedback by September 29, 2022. Comments and discussion were also solicited and discussed at the October 18-19 workshop.

A partial draft of a companion NIST AI RMF Playbook was available for initial comments by September 29, 2022, and at the October workshop. Feedback on the Playbook can be provided at any time and suggestions will be reviewed and integrated on a semi-annual basis.

NIST issued a second draft of the AI RMF for written comments and at the October 18-19, 2022, workshop.

NIST issued a first draft of the AI RMF for written comments  and at the March 29-31, 2022, workshop.
