According to:

Article 113(b)

The EU is setting up a panel of independent experts to help enforce its AI regulations. The panel will be made up of experts chosen by the Commission, who have up-to-date knowledge in AI and are independent from any AI system providers. They will support the AI Office by alerting them to potential risks, helping develop evaluation tools, and advising on the classification of AI models. The experts will work impartially and confidentially, and will not take instructions from anyone. They will also have to declare any interests to avoid conflicts. The Commission will decide the number of experts needed and ensure fair representation.
