UK: Proof-of-age scheme appoints new board members

By | 9 August 2012

The UK's proof-of-age scheme, PASS, has appointed four new members to its board as it continues to help crack down on under-age sales. 

The Wine and Spirit Trade Association's chief executive, Miles Beale, is among those to join the board, the Proof of Age Standards Scheme (PASS) said. The appointments replace previous representatives from trade groups who have recently moved into new roles.

“High level support from politicians, police, trading standards and the industry has been vital to establishing the credibility of PASS scheme," the scheme's chairman Robert Humphreys said.

"The fact that such senior players are willing to invest significant amounts of their time as board members shows just how seriously the industry takes its responsibility in preventing under age sales.” 

The other new board members  are the British Institute of Innkeeping's chief executive, Peter Thomas, Paul Davis, the British Retail Consortium's finance director and Paul Baxter, the National Federation of Retail Newsagents' chief executive.
