The Age Check Certification Scheme is set up in accordance with the provisions of ISO 17065:2012* to provide robust, impartial and independent third party certification and validation of systems and processes used by age verification service providers. We are committed to ensuring an impartial, competent and consistent scheme in accordance with our certification processes.
We are appointed as the auditors for the UK’s national Proof-of-Age Standards Scheme (PASS) and provide the UK’s only recognised training course for Advanced Practitioners in Under Age Sales Enforcement. We can validate claims of conformity against:
- The Proof-of-Age Standards Scheme (for ID Card issuers)

- The Regulatory Delivery Code of Practice on the Enforcement of Age Restricted Products and Services Legislation (for enforcers)

- The Provisions of the Social Responsibility Code relating to preventing children having access to gambling (Provision 3.2.1) under the Gambling Act 2005
The Age Check Certification Scheme is a division of social enterprise Under Age Sales Ltd – the UK’s leading provider of training, support and prevention materials for age restricted products and services. To maintain its independence and impartiality, Under Age Sales Ltd does not provide age verification services or proof-of-age ID cards.

* Please note that, at present, none of the age verification standards are eligible for accreditation of certification schemes by UKAS under ISO 17065:2012. We hope that in due course, they will be eligible for accreditation.
