EU Toolbox for COVID-19 apps and Commission Guidance on DP
The eHealth Network, a voluntary network of Member States’ authorities responsible for eHealth, published a common EU Toolbox for Member States on Mobile applications to support contact tracing in the EU’s fight against COVID-19. It did so with the help of the European Commission. The toolbox provides guidance for the Member States and explains how mobile applications can support contact tracing in the EU’s fight against COVID-19. The EU Toolbox was complemented by the Commission’s Guidance on apps supporting the fight against COVID-19 pandemic in relation to data protection. The attached note which our office prepared explains why and how.
