Record of Refusals
When refusing the sale of alcohol it is good practice to record the details. A refusal log is important because it shows that you are complying with the law for age-restricted products and acts as evidence should you need to prove that you actively enforce the Challenge 25 policy.
This downloadable Refusals Log can be used.
Age Verification Policy
In October 2011, the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 was amended to introduce a new mandatory condition for all premises licences and occasional licences. This means that there must be an age verification policy in relation to the sale of alcohol on the premises. The law has set a minimum age of 25 years for the policy so, where it appears to the person selling the alcohol that the customer may be under the age of 25 years, they are required to ask them for identification to prove that they are over the age of 18 and can lawfully purchase alcohol.
An Age Verification Policy must be signed and dated by every member of staff involved in the sale and service of alcohol.
