NIST is seeking comments on a second draft of the NIST Artificial Intelligence Risk Management Framework (AI RMF). The AI RMF is intended for voluntary use in addressing risks in the design, development, use, and evaluation of AI products, services, and systems. The new draft builds on and reflects the discussions at the AI RMF Workshop #2 and incorporates feedback received on the initial draft released in March 2022. 

NIST also seeks comments on the draft  NIST AI RMF Playbook, an online resource providing recommended actions on how to implement the Framework. The draft Playbook includes suggested actions, references, and supplementary guidance for “Govern” and “Map” – two of the four proposed Framework functions. Draft material for the other two functions, “Measure” and “Manage,” will be released at a later date. 

Comments on the draft Framework and initial comments on the draft Playbook should be sent via email to AIframework [at] by September 29, 2022. 

Feedback also will be welcomed during discussions at the Building the NIST AI Risk Management Framework: Workshop #3 on October 18-19, 2022.  Registration for the virtual workshop is now open.

NIST plans to publish AI RMF 1.0 in January 2023.
