Ukrainian Covid-certificates in the Diia application passed successfully the technical assessment in the European Union. This was announced by the Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine Mykhailo Fedorov in Telegram.
"The EU technical team praised the implementation time, accuracy, and compliance of our documents with EU requirements, namely the EU Digital Covid Certificate of the European Commission. The last step is the political part of mutual recognition, that is an approval by the European Commission and signing a memorandum," the Minister wrote.
Fedorov noted that certain Ukrainian institutions are jointly involved in the development and technical implementation of Diia certificates: the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Healthcare, the National Health Insurance Fund, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine.
Earlier, Fedorov pointed that about 10,000 Covid certificates are being tested in Ukraine, and their public launch may take place in the nearest future.
As it was reported earlier, on July 5, the first certificates appeared in the app. They are already received by Ukrainians who have been vaccinated with Pfizer / BioNTech (Comirnaty), AstraZeneca-SK Bio (Vaxzevria), Covishield, and Sinovac (CoronaVac). AstraZeneca, Moderna, Pfizer / BioNTech, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines have been approved in the EU.
