CHECKING PASS ACCREDITED CARDS

Asking for and accepting PASS cards is due diligence. Remember to follow the five step checking process.

FIVE STEP CHECKING PROCESS

Follow these simple 5 steps to make sure you avoid making an underage sale:

  1. Check the PASS hologram. Is it genuine (as shown on sample/training cards)?
  2. Check the photograph. Does it match the person in front of you?
  3. Check the date of birth. Is the person old enough?
  4. Check the card. Has it been tampered with?
  5. Check the person. Are you satisfied about the person’s age?  If not, refuse to sell.

Materials illustrating the 5 step checking process are available under Downloads for Retailers on the PASS website, www.pass-scheme.org.uk/downloads/
