FEN009 - YOURGENE HEALTH ACHIEVES COMPLIANCE TO MAJOR UK GOVERNMENT COVID TESTING SCHEMES.
In August 2020, and in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the UK government Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) published a set of minimum performance standards that private providers of SARS-CoV-2 testing are required to meet. There are three separate lists, each with different criteria, to which providers can self-declare their compliance. The lists are:
• Technologies Validation Group (TVG). A national technical validation process for manufacturers of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) tests
• Test-to-release (TTR). Required for international travel - day 5 and day 2/day 8 streams
• General private testing. Includes ‘Fit-to-Fly’ and workplace occupational testing as per local policies
