I propose to take Questions Nos. 551 and 640 together.

The Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/2014 of 17 November 2021 amending Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/1073 laying down technical specifications and rules for the implementation of the trust framework for the EU Digital COVID Certificate established by Regulation (EU) 2021/953 was adopted by the Commission on 17 November and published on 18 November in the Official Journal.

The technical specifications in this Implementing Decision relating to additional Covid vaccination doses are being considered with a view to the issuing of certificates for booster doses.
