Committed as independent third party

Expertise in secure AI

Whether in association with policymakers and businesses or in dialog with universities, tech startups, and users, DEKRA has established itself as an integral part of the AI ecosystem. As an independent third party, it is committed to ensuring that AI is safe, secure, and trustworthy.

Regulation and standardization

Legislative initiatives have been introduced in a host of countries with a view to regulating AI – one example being the EU AI Act within the European Union. As an independent testing and certification expert, DEKRA is playing an active part in these processes. It also contributes to the work of standardization bodies such as the prestigious International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and its ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 42 Artificial Intelligence working group.

Advisory services for businesses

The emerging role of AI in an increasing array of products and processes is instilling trust in this new technology. As a global partner at all stages of the AI model and application development cycle, DEKRA helps organizations navigate this journey with training programs focusing on current and upcoming AI regulations, audits to ensure compliance with standards, and comprehensive tests supported by state-of-the-art software tools.

Commitment to people

In providing services such as model robustness, data quality, and risk management for AI applications, DEKRA is also engaged in global efforts to protect the safety and security of AI users. To ensure that the technology simplifies and enriches life, it must be compatible with the values expected by society – for example, by being transparent, safe, secure, and sustainable.
