UK Publishes COVID-19 Self-Test Specifications

Executive Summary

The UK's MHRA is looking for manufacturers to submit COVID-19 self-tests that meet minimum and desired criteria for evaluation, after finding its recently purchased 3.5m self-tests failed to meet these standards. Criteria include no requirement for testing knowledge or training or assistance from a healthcare professional in administering or interpreting the results of the test, as well as a 95% accuracy level.
