Covid Status Certification Review Call For Evidence

Hotly debated now have your say. By 29th March.

The government is reviewing whether COVID-status certification could play a role in reopening the economy, reducing restrictions on social contact and improving safety.

COVID-status certification refers to the use of testing or vaccination data to confirm in different settings that individuals have a lower risk of getting sick with or transmitting COVID-19 to others. Such certification would be available both to vaccinated people and to unvaccinated people who have been tested.

The government will assess to what extent certification would be effective in reducing risk, and its potential uses in enabling access to settings or relaxing COVID-secure mitigations.

The government is looking to consider the ethical, equalities, privacy, legal and operational aspects of a potential certification scheme, and what limits, if any, should be placed on organisations using certification.

The Government has issued this call for evidence to inform this review into COVID-status certification, to ensure that the recommendations reflect a broad range of interests and concerns.
