WASHINGTON – The Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) received roughly 1,447 written comments in response to its Artificial Intelligence Accountability Policy Request for Comment (RFC), which was issued in April and is part of President Biden’s commitment to seizing the opportunities AI presents while managing its risks.

The comments are available to the public at

NTIA launched its RFC to advance efforts to ensure that AI systems work as claimed – and without causing harm. The insights gathered through this RFC will help inform the Biden Administration’s ongoing work on a cohesive and comprehensive federal government approach to AI-related risks and opportunities. 

NTIA sought feedback on what policies can support the development of AI audits, assessments, certifications, and other mechanisms to create earned trust in AI systems, raising confidence that they are trustworthy. Much as financial audits create trust in the accuracy of a business’s financial statements, such mechanisms can help provide assurance that an AI system does what it is intended to do without adverse consequences. 

These comments will help inform a forthcoming report from NTIA setting out policy recommendations on the mechanisms that can create earned trust in AI systems.
