European Union officials have adopted a list of Covid-19 rapid antigen tests whose results will be recognised in the 27 countries of the bloc, the European Commission said on Thursday. The EU’s Health Security Committee agreed the common list of antigen tests, along with a common standardised set of data to be included in Covid-19 test result certificates. Antigen tests are quicker but less reliable indicators for the virus than the gold-standard PCR test.

EU Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, Stella Kyriakides, said: “Rapid antigen tests are crucial to slow down the spread of Covid-19 and should be part of our overall response to the pandemic. “If negative Covid-19 tests are to be required or recommended for any activity, it is essential that they are mutually recognised, and result in certificates recognised across the EU.
