Updated as of 17 May 2022

Health and Safety at DPI: Nederland 2022

The IAPP will continue to monitor and communicate COVID-19 developments and follow recommendations set forth by The Hague, as these regulations are continually subject to change.

On Friday 25 February, the Netherlands government announced indoor venues will no longer be required to verify patrons are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 but businesses may choose to keep vaccination requirements in place. In addition, on 23 March, the indoor mask mandate was lifted but again, local businesses may implement their own guidelines. For a comprehensive look at current citywide guidelines and recommendations, please click here.

Vaccine Proof
The IAPP will require all delegates, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and IAPP staff to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. As of 23 March 2022, the Netherlands lifted the indoor mask mandate and therefore, masking is at the discretion of the individual.

  • A photo of the client's vaccine card stored on a phone or electronic device; OR
  • Documentation of vaccination from a healthcare provider; OR
  • Documentation of vaccination from other contracted employers who follow these vaccination records guidelines and standards.

If you cannot be vaccinated due to a medical condition or a sincerely held religious belief, the IAPP will require proof (paper or electronic copy) of a negative COVID-19 test at event check-in. Documentation must include:

  • Test result.
  • Type of test (nucleic acid amplification test [NAAT], which includes polymerase chain reaction [PCR], and antigen tests).
  • Entity issuing the result (e.g., laboratory, healthcare entity, or telehealth service).
  • Specimen collection date. A negative test result must show the specimen was collected within 72 hours of entering the conference venue.
  • Accompanying proof of identification in the form of a driver's license or passport that visibly identifies the person on the test result.

Please note: the IAPP will not be collecting any of this documentation, just verifying.
