On the 1st of October 2011 all licensed premises in Scotland are now required to operate a challenge policy.
This policy is Challenge 25
This simply means
Anyone who appears under the age of 25 should be challenged to prove their age when attempting to purchase alcohol or any other age restricted products
Section 6 of The Alcohol etc. (Scotland) Act 2010 introduces a new mandatory condition for all premises licences and occasional licences requiring that there must be an age verification policy in place in relation to the sale of alcohol on the premises. The section has set a minimum age of 25 years for the policy where it appears to the person selling the alcohol that the customer may be under the age of 25 years. Premises may set any minimum age for their own policy provided that it is 25 years or over.
