This International Standard sets out a common framework for age assurance systems deployed for the purpose of enabling age-related eligibility decisions by anybody for any reason in any location through any type of relationship between an individual and the provider of any product, content or service that has policy requirements for acquiring assurance about the age of persons (such as the supply of liquor, tobacco, weapons or online content).
Age-related eligibility decisions are based on the fact that a person must either be older or younger than a given threshold age or be within an age range, where ages are counted in years and where these criteria are dependent upon the type of goods, content or service to be provided.
Age Assurance Systems are established and operated by identity service providers or attributes attestation providers, or may be deployed internally by the providers of age-restricted products, content or services. This document aims to solve the problem of inadequately defined age assurance processes and associated lack of trust and no recognised benchmark against which the systems can be scored in terms of efficacy, privacy and security.
