Key takeaways 

  • Background: As countries around the world work to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic and restart their economies, they all face the challenge of how to reopen their borders and allow travel and commerce to resume while protecting their populations’ health.
  • To address this challenge, The Commons Project Foundation and the World Economic Forum have launched the Common Trust Network in collaboration with a broad voluntary network of public and private stakeholders.
  • The Common Trust Network is designed to:
  1. empower individuals with digital access to their health information,
  2. make it easier for individuals to understand and comply with each destination’s requirements, 
  3. ensure that only verifiable lab results and vaccination records from trusted sources are presented for cross-border travel and commerce.
  • The Network is enabled by a global registry of trusted laboratory and vaccination data sources, standard formats for lab results and vaccination records, and standard tools to make those results and records digitally accessible.
