In many countries, providers of special treatments require special licences which impose strict age restrictions
These licences often include very specific age restrictions for access to these services such as massage, manicure, chiropody, light treatments, eg sunbeds, electric treatments, eg electrolysis, acupuncture, tattoos, piercings or other treatments involving heat, light or vapour, eg sauna or other bath treatments
How can the Age Check Certification Scheme help special treatments services?
We test that age check systems work. We do this through audits, test purchasing and mystery shopping. We also provide the training that you need for your staff and all of the industry standard signage and materials for a professional approach. We can help with age verification policies and if you have an online store, we can test this against PAS 1296:2018.
Why do I have to get this done?
Local laws place obligations on special treatments services to take steps to prevent the underage sale of age restricted goods. The penalties for failing to comply can be substantial including the forced closure of your business. You can find out more about the local laws that apply here.
