EDPB & EDPS adopt joint opinion on the extension of the EU Digital COVID Certificate Regulation
The EDPB and EDPS have adopted a joint opinion on the European Commission’s proposals to extend the current Regulations on the EU Digital COVID Certificate (EUDCC) by 12 months and to amend certain provisions, such as a broadening of the types of COVID tests accepted in the context of travels within the EU and clarifying that vaccination certificates should contain the number of doses administered to the holder, regardless of the Member State in which they have been administered.
In line with the previous joint opinion on the initial COVID Certificate Regulations, the EDPB and the EDPS recall that compliance with data protection rules does not constitute an obstacle for fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. The EDPB and EDPS regret that no impact assessment was carried out by the Commission.
