Green pass, agreement made in the trialogue between the EU Council and the European Parliament on the Covid certificate which should facilitate freedom of movement within the Union, even if it is specified that it will not be “a precondition for exercising the right to freedom of movement”, it is learned from parliamentary sources. The certificate should prove the vaccination with EMA approved vaccines (for those not approved the choice whether to recognize them or not will be up to the States) or the negativity to a test. As for the recovery from Covid, the use of serological tests as proof will be possible only later, with a delegated act, parliamentary sources report, on the basis of “evidence”. The regulation will enter into force on 1 July 2021 and will remain valid for one year, and it has been established that it will be called the Eu Digital Covid Certificate, i.e. the digital EU Covid certificate, and not the Green Digital Certificate. Member States have blocked any reference to the free tests necessary to obtain the certificate if one is not vaccinated. The Commission should therefore allocate € 100 million to purchase rapid tests for frontier workers and those considered essential. Further restrictions on certified travelers are not possible “in principle”, however they may be imposed “where necessary and in a proportionate manner, based on evidence, with notification to the Commission and other Member States”.
