The Proof of Age Standards Scheme (PASS) is an initiative of businesses involved in the sale of age-restricted products. The Home Office supports this initiative and encourages licensed premises to accept identity cards bearing the PASS hologram. Acceptance of cards with the PASS hologram will be encouraged in Home Office False ID Guidance to be republished early in the new year. However, the types of identification accepted by a shop, pub or club properly remains a decision for the management of those premises.
