CBI SCOTLAND RESPONDS TO SCOTTISH PARLIAMENT VACCINE PASSPORT APPROVAL
10th September 2021
Tracy Black, CBI Scotland Director, said:"Covid status certification has the potential to be a useful tool in managing risk in large venues. However, any rollout must be on the basis of close cooperation and coordination with businesses to ensure ease of access, ease of use, and ease of implementation.
"Business' preference would be for there to be flexibility in any scheme, so it also includes the option of a negative test alongside vaccination status to avoid issues of exclusion.
"Businesses also need to be supported with legal advice and crystal clear guidance on monitoring, enforcement and GDPR compliance, as firms will be responsible for collecting and storing health data.
"Working with business to get the rollout right first time will be crucial maintaining confidence as we learn to live with the virus."
