Helping Retailers Stamp out Underage Sales
Get your FREE ‘No ID, No Sale!’ Pack here
It's not personal, it's the law!
Use the materials in the Retail Pack to help you and your staff comply with the legislation on underage sales. Doing so will help prevent you from being prosecuted, fined or losing the right to sell alcohol, tobacco or lottery products.
Restricted Sale & Premises Orders
If your shop has been caught selling tobacco to under-18s twice within 2 years, a conviction on a 3rd illegal sale can result in a Restricted Sale or Premises Order. Find out what the consequences are in the retail pack.
Children should not smoke, drink alcohol, play with fireworks or take part in the lottery. Retailers selling these products are on the front line.
Younger customers must always be challenged for valid ID – either a CitizenCard or other PASS card, Photo driving licence or passport.
All staff need to know how to check ID and where to record refusals. Both they and you can be fined if prosecuted for underage sales.
