PROPOSAL FOR A REGULATION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL ON DIGITAL GREEN CERTIFICATE (COVID-19) 2

Abstract

This year, the European Commission proposed to establish a framework for issuing and accepting certificates of vaccination as part of a special electronic “Green Certificate”, an umbrella documentation for cross-border movement in the pandemic environment (in addition to the certificates of past viral infection, negative test results, etc.) . The freedom of movement of an individual is not only one of the elementary freedoms for the citizens of the European Union, but an aspect on which a range of industries relies, including the industry of insurance. Therefore, devising mechanisms to facilitate mobility in the pandemic environment is a very important. 3 By establishing such a system, the European Union seeks to simplify the realization of opportunities, i.e. the right to mobility of European citizens, both those who have already been vaccinated/intend to vaccinate and those who, for various reasons, are not in a position to vaccinate (e.g. children or individuals with aggravated health risk). The definition of this act is in compliance with the sense of the Article 21 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, which deals with the exercise of freedom of movement and role of the EU institutions in facilitating the achievement of such rights. The provisions of the Regulation will be briefly presented hereinafter.
