COVID certificate: standardised, forgery-proof and internationally compatible

28. April 2021 – The federal government aims to develop a standardised, forgery-proof and internationally recognised COVID certificate by the summer. The COVID certificate must be designed so that only decentralised data storage is possible, data protection and security requirements are met, and it is compatible with the EU’s Digital Green Certificate. The certificate will be issued both on smartphones and on paper. Initially, two technical solutions are to be pursued. The final decision on which option is used will be taken in mid-May. The Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) is involving the relevant stakeholders in the work to ensure that the chosen solution is fit for purpose and user-friendly.
