The Age Verification Providers Association represents the main technology suppliers who have invested in the development of age verification solutions to implement age restrictions online. The UK leads the world in this technology, and many other jurisdictions are considering adopting a similar approach to making the internet a safer place for children.
Our current membership includes: AgeChecked, GBG, Pay360, Verime, W2 and Yoti, with additional associate members including Age Check Certification Scheme, AgeGo, AgeID and ServeLegal.
As an Association, we work to:
- Inform and educate the public, industry, and media, on age verification solutions and technology.
- Promote a positive image of effective age verification and the age verification industry.
- Represent the industry to regulators and law makers for the advancement of best practice, socially-responsible age verification policy.
The AVPA was formed in 2018 from organisations involved in the UK’s Digital Policy Alliance age verification working group, and created and in response to a need for a uniform voice for of the industry.
The AVPA is governed by a representative Board drawn from its member organisations.
