This was stated by the European Commissioner for Legal Affairs Didier Reynders at a meeting of the European Parliament, reports The Local.

The Pan-European electronic system for issuing certificates will be fully operational on July 1.

Nevertheless, seven EU countries have already started issuing documents to their citizens. In addition, a portal for verifying the authenticity of certificates is already running.

“The more certificates we can already issue, the easier the process will be in the summer — otherwise we risk a big influx on July 1, which we can’t afford,” Reynders said.

The EU digital certificate can be presented in a digital format, for example, on a smartphone, or printed on paper.

It has a QR code for verification, which border guards and facility staff can use to verify digital signatures securely stored on Luxembourg’s servers.
