LONDON, JAN 23, 2024 — ComplyCube, a global leader in Identity Verification (IDV) solutions, has received the ACCS Certification for Age Check Systems and Data Protection and Privacy Certification, incorporating PAS 1296:2018 Code of Practice for Age Check Systems. This certification, awarded by the Age Check Certification Scheme (ACCS), cements ComplyCube’s dedication to protecting minors across various online sectors.
Navigating Global Regulatory Landscapes
In an era of increasing regulatory demands and online safety challenges, the milestone is more relevant than ever. The FTC’s hefty $170 million fine for COPPA violations in the US highlights the critical need for compliance in safeguarding minors. In the UK, with 45% of young internet users encountering inappropriate content, the necessity for effective age controls is evident. Further, Brazil’s burgeoning sports betting market, expected to reach $1.70bn by 2028, underscores the importance of robust age verification in the online gaming sector.
