Leaders in Safety Tech.

VerifyMyAge has formed a legal partnership with Cambridgeshire & Peterborough local authority to issue Assured Advice in relation to the sale of age-restricted products and services.

Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Trading Standards have been working closely with VerifyMyAge since 2019 through a government supported Primary Authority Coordinated Partnership scheme. Their use of innovative technology and class leading applications to help prevent the online sale of age restricted products to children is very much at the forefront of using digital systems to safeguard consumers. The automated monitoring and test purchasing undertaken gives confidence to both retailers, regulators and online platforms that the customer is of the legal age to make a purchase.”
Mark R Oliver, Trading Standards.
