Commonpass, Trustassure and Affinidi announce global solution for end-to end health status verification for international travel  

New partnership delivers universal health pass solution that verifies COVID-19 health  credentials through globally interoperable platform and leveraging the world’s largest lab  network 

The partnership brings together the world’s largest and most trusted network of testing labs and  vaccination providers spanning over 15,000 locations across 82 countries. 

Technology from Affinidi’s Unifier and TrustAssure will enable CommonPass to verify any health  credential type (e.g. EU COVID-19 Certificate, SMART Health Cards, HealthCerts, DIVOC), across digital  and paper-based test results and vaccination records (e.g. CDC vaccination cards). 

The partnership offers airlines and countries an integrated solution for verifying health status online  prior to check-in, reducing airport congestion as international travel resumes.  

Over 30 leading global airlines have already deployed the partners’ solutions, thereby returning  operational efficiency to airlines and convenience to passengers, while protecting data privacy. 

The Commons Project Foundation, TrustAssure and Affinidi are implementing a universal health pass solution designed to interoperate with the leading health credential standards being deployed worldwide, enabling airlines and border control offices to quickly verify an individual’s COVID-19 health status as international travel resumes.  

“As Delta designs solutions to help our customers navigate the complexities of post-pandemic  international travel, this partnership will give us the tools to verify more credentials from trusted  health providers as more countries reopen. We are bringing together trusted standards in  partnership with CommonPass, TrustAssure, Affinidi and others to save customers time and reduce  guesswork," said Matthew Shigenobu Muta, Vice President Innovation, Delta Air Lines

Proving that individuals are COVID-19 vaccinated and COVID-19 free is a complex issue that requires airlines and border officials to verify thousands of siloed sources of data globally. With different  countries adopting different digital credential technology, there has not been a global agreement on a single specification of data flow or an established standard for ensuring the validity of a health record from the lab issuance of a health credential all the way through to the verification of that  information. 

The combination of CommonPass, TrustAssure and Affinidi will bring best-of-breed services in unique fields to a single, integrated, end-to-end service that makes it easy for organizations, airlines or governments to verify the COVID-19 status of individuals and ensure the records come from a trusted, reputable health data source. 

Under the new partnership, travelers will be able to use TrustAssure to schedule and book a COVID 19 test in a way that meets the local requirements of their destination and allows users to upload the results and convert them into a globally recognized format. 

CommonPass provides the ability for sensitive health reports and credentials to be converted to a  privacy-preserving verifiable credential, allowing for proof of entry requirements without disclosing  any personal information.  

Affinidi, through its Unifier solution, enables airlines and immigrations authorities to efficiently and  accurately verify different technologies, standards and formats on a single web-based platform.  

“Today marks a major milestone for the stakeholders looking for a trusted, efficient way to manage  the record verification process, in a way that is also privacy preserving for the consumer,” said Paul  Meyer, CEO of The Commons Project Foundation. “The Commons Project is committed to  developing solutions that put individuals in full control of their own health data, and working with  Affinidi and TrustAssure to provide this option is a critical part of realizing this mission.” 

“Building upon our growing success in the travel sector, deeply integrating the TrustAssure platform  with both CommonPass and Affinidi is the natural next step in the evolution of a true end-to-end  solution that focuses on returning operational efficiency to travel related providers and delivering  the pre-Covid convenience experience for passengers.” said Glenn Field CEO of SiriusIQ and CLX  Health. “Our combined long-term vision is lock step with the important work that The Commons  Project Foundation is doing. This is a natural partnership.” 

Commenting on the partnership, Glenn Gore, CEO of Affinidi, said: “With countries gradually easing  restrictions for international travel, public health safety remains the top priority for governments,  the aviation industry and travelers alike. We believe that achieving this requires the collaboration of  global and diverse stakeholders to find new and effective solutions that are built on a trusted  ecosystem of verifiable health credentials. As we continue to enable a growing network of global  partners through our interoperable Unifier solution, this partnership with CommonPass and  TrustAssure is a step in the right direction and contributes to our collective efforts to rebuild  confidence in reopening cross-border travels safely.”
