COCIR response on an EU digital ID scheme

2 October 2020

COCIR appreciates the opportunity to provide feedback to the European Commission’s consultation on an EU digital ID scheme.

The digital transformation of healthcare is progressing at an ever-increasing pace. The importance of identity as a key factor in moving towards a patient-centred and integrated care approach can not be overstated.

COCIR is fully supportive of the Commission’s intention to strengthen the eIDAS framework, to address current shortcomings and fragmentation, and to adapt to the changing context brought on by the digital transformation and the uptake of novel technologies.

COCIR remains committed to working with the European Commission and other involved stakeholders to create a flexible and secure framework for trust services.
