To answer this question, we turned to the only regulatory act that described the boundaries of the control of COVID19 Green Certifications, the Decree of the President of the Council of Ministers June 17, 2021, precisely Article 13 which we publish below in full.

We remind you that knowing the laws that are contested is the first way to counter them!
