Veridas Expands Its Age Verification Solution...

...Enabling Seamless Compliance with Enhanced User Experience

Age Estimation Solution Delivers Accurate and Efficient Age Verification

Pamplona, Spain, June 8th, 2023- Veridas, a leading global provider of AI-driven identity verification solutions, is proud to announce the expansion of its groundbreaking Age Verification product. Designed to help businesses meet stringent age verification regulations, this cutting-edge solution combines biometric verification and artificial intelligence to deliver accurate and efficient age verification services.

Veridas’ existing Age Verification solution now comes equipped with Age Validation capabilities, which only require a simple selfie. This new component will allow our customers to drive age verification processes that respect their users' privacy by not requiring them to show or send any personal data, such as identity documents.

In an era of tightening regulatory restrictions, businesses face increasing pressure to comply with age verification laws or face severe penalties, including fines and legal actions. Veridas' Age Verification product offers a seamless and reliable solution, empowering businesses to verify customer ages quickly and confidently.

A growing regulatory context for greater child protection

Regulatory bodies worldwide are increasingly focused on implementing measures to safeguard children in the digital era. Stricter age verification requirements are enforced for online platforms, including gambling, social media, adult sites and marketplaces. Failure to comply with these regulations can lead to significant penalties and legal consequences.

In the United Kingdom, regulations such as the Gambling Commission's License Conditions and Codes of Practice and the recently introduced "Age Assurance" provision of the Children's Code emphasize age verification to prevent underage access to online platforms and protect children from age-inappropriate content. In the United States, individual states are taking proactive measures to address age verification and child protection online. Examples include Louisiana's law requiring age verification on pornography websites and Arkansas' Social Media Safety Act. Federal proposals, such as the Mature Act and the Kids Online Safety Act (KOSA), seek to introduce national regulations and age verification standards for online platforms.

These UK and US regulations highlight the ongoing efforts to establish comprehensive age verification mechanisms and ensure enhanced child protection measures in the digital landscape.
