A new document published by the Local Better Regulation Office (LBRO) setting out a ‘Framework on Age Restricted Products and Services’ has been endorsed by several professional and trade associations.  It’s good news for CitizenCard cardholders according to Robert Humphreys, Chairman of PASS:

"This set of principles provides an excellent and balanced framework for the forthcoming Code of Practice which should serve as the definitive guide on age-restricted sales. We welcome in particular the emphasis on PASS as the preferred proof of age for enforcers and the need for retailers and suppliers to be clear that they accept PASS as proof of age.

“And for young people, as well as a responsibility to equip themselves with valid proof of age and not to use fake or borrowed ID, the framework quite rightly highlights the reasonable expectation that they should have...

Please sign the ePetition (http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/22624) urging the Home Office to make it obligatory for all bars and clubs to recognise all PASS cards. The vast majority of cardholders have no problem using their card because the PASS hologram is supported by the government, police and trading standards. However, some of our customers have had nights out ruined because doorstaff or barstaff say the card's "no good". Only the Home Office can sort this out - if we can get 100,000 signatures there'll be a debate in the House of Commons.
