PRLog - Aug. 14, 2009 - NORTHWICH, U.K. -- The Proof GB™ card aims to ensure that age restricted goods and services are only sold to those old enough to purchase them: it also helps those who may look younger than they are to prove their age.
Proof GB Cards are available to all ages and come in the following age bands. Under 16, 16/17, 18+, 21+, 25+ and 60+.
These are the current age restrictions set out under various laws in the United Kingdom for the goods and services listed. These restrictions are correct at the time of launching the Proof GB™ website at www.proofgb.com
Age restricted sales list of products (SHORTENED)
Age 12, 15, 18: Video Recordings and DVD's
Age 16 and Over: Liquor Chocolates, Lottery Tickets and Scratchcards,
Party Poppers and Caps, Petrol
Age 17 and over: Crossbows
Age 18 and over: Alcohol, Butane Gas Lighter Fuel, Cigarettes and Tobacco,
Fireworks (excluding Party Poppers), Intoxicating Substances (Solvents),
Offensive Weapons (including Knives)
What is PASS?
The PASS scheme works for both the retailer and people of all ages. It ensures that the retailer has the confidence that the PASS accredited card is genuine and that the person has access to goods and services to which their age gives them legal access.
Determining the age of any person is difficult and is unlikely to get any easier. The pressure on retailers and their staff will continue to increase as technology enables fraudsters to produce
more sophisticated and authentic looking proof-of-age cards.
What does a PASS accredited card look like?
The cards carry standard information with a prominent PASS hologram.
A PASS accredited proof-of-age card will have the following:
• Date of birth
• Full name
• A passport standard photograph
• An image of the holder's signature (some cards only)
