How to use COVIDCert Check NI

The app can be used to scan a 2D barcode within the Cert Check NI app. It does not store or transmit any personal data during this process.

Event or venue organisations in Northern Ireland can download the free Cert Check NI app from the Apple or Google app stores.

The COVIDCert Check app can scan the HSC COVID certificate via a mobile or tablet or where someone has printed off a PDF version from their phone.

When used for the first time, the consent agreement screen will display. The first time the user applies the Cert Check app, the user is asked to agree on a consent form, by clicking “I have read and agree to the terms and conditions”. The app will not function if user agreement is not obtained.

Click on “Check a 2D barcode”. A two-dimensional (2D) barcode looks like squares or rectangles that contain many small, individual dots.

When opening the camera on your mobile device for the first time, please click “OK” to allow the app to have permission to use the camera. The screenshot below is from an Android phone. A similar screen and permission request will display on an iOS (Apple) phone.
