Age assurance is a fast moving sector, with new methods being developed all the time. Currently, checks can be conducted using:
- Identity Documents (Passport, Driving Licence, PASS Scheme cards)
- Credit reference agency data
- Electoral Roll
- Mobile Phone account records
- Social analysis
- Facial image analysis
Each of these, alone or in combination, verify age to a different level of assurance. Regulators can determine the level of assurance they require for each use.
