About this Episode

In this episode, we talk about the first officially approved certification schemes under Art.42 of UK GDPR by the ICO: the Data Protection and Privacy for ID & Age Assurance Services, and the Age Appropriate Design Certification.

Our special guest, Tony Allen CEO of The Age Check Certification Scheme (ACCS) talks about the scope and applicability of the certification schemes and what technology companies need to consider. Tony also explains more about the ACCS which is a UKAS-accredited conformity assessment body, comprised of auditors, certification specialists, and data protection experts and how they independently test and certify online and offline systems that check age and identity, such as passport scanners, biometric technology, and age verification software.
