IT product for adult verification successfully passes recertification according to EuroPriSe
AVS-EU is an IT product that processes identity card and driving license data for the purpose of adult verification. Relevant data are identified by means of an optical card reader and an OCR-Software. The product can be attached to automatic vending machines in order to ensure that legal requirements in respect of the minimum age of users are met. Practical use cases are cigarette vending machines or DVD vending/rental machines.
AVS-EU identifies the data necessary for determining the age of the owner of the respective card and sends an electronic release signal if the owner’s age is as required (e.g., > 18 years). Data are deleted immediately after the verification process.
The re-evaluation that was performed by EuroPriSe Legal Expert Stephan Hansen-Oest and EuroPriSe Technical Expert Andreas Bethke concluded that AVS-EU v2.1 still meets all applicable EuroPriSe requirements.
