192 quoted in proposed bill to ensure verification for age restricted good bought on line.
Margaret Moran, Labour MP for Luton South proposed a new bill regarding the online purchase of goods and services, relating to age verification.
Read on the 22nd January in the House of Commons, the proposed new bill would require online retailers to verify customers in the respect of age restricted goods and services.
David Pope, Marketing Director at 192.com Business Services was quoted in Margaret’s reading, stating:
“the online gaming industry has already proved that they can enable an instant customer age verification during the online transaction without incurring significant additional costs and without harming the customers experience”.
192 believe that age verification is a fast and easy check that can easily integrate into the customer acquisition process, and furthermore can ensure both legal and moral compliance, as well as brand protection.
The next reading of the bill is scheduled for Friday 16th May, and you can read a transcript of the previous speech here.
