The successful implementation of an AI governance program is contingent upon outlining the scope of the program and driving organizational shifts towards prioritization of AI governance. The core of an AI governance program is the applicable legal and regulatory framework which helps define the obligations an organization is expected to undertake in relation to AI systems. 

Selecting an appropriate AI governance model is another key cornerstone which dictates the structure and principles guiding AI governance. Moreover, establishing an experienced and well-equipped AI governance team is crucial for driving program success. The implementation of an AI governance program involves identifying and approving AI technologies and their corresponding use cases, aligning them with legitimate business purposes while ensuring legal compliance. Implementing data governance processes within each AI system ensures the integrity of data utilized. Moreover, identifying relevant AI actors in the AI lifecycle and streamlining the process of identifying existing and new AI initiates and documenting their details lays the groundwork for a robust governance framework. These steps, complemented by AI system classification, impact assessments, risk assessments, and comprehensive training and testing requirements, form a holistic approach to AI governance. Awareness and training initiatives, continuous monitoring and feedback integration mechanisms further ensure adaptability and improvement, fostering a culture of responsible AI adoption and development.

Emerging AI legal frameworks, such as the EU AI Act, establish a comprehensive model for AI governance, which covers classification of AI systems as per the risk posed by them, and outlines varying obligations for entities involved in the AI value chain, including transparency, human oversight, data governance, technical documentation, accuracy, robustness, cybersecurity. The EU AI Act also mandates registration of high-risk AI systems in the EU database, and requires providers of such systems to conduct conformity assessments and post market monitoring analysis. The EU AI Act establishes a robust enforcement framework with strict penalties for non-compliance. 

An effective AI governance program would help organizations understand their role in the AI value chain and corresponding obligations, and streamline compliance through set processes and documentation. Developing the scope of the program from the outset and aligning it with business objectives would also facilitate the compliance process by eliminating potential roadblocks. Moreover, systemic procedures for mapping data flows within AI systems, and conducting risk, impact and vendor assessments would also fast-track the compliance process. Further, the training and feedback models would integrate a culture of AI awareness within the organization which would lead to more accountability.
