Innovative Technology Ltd., a provider of biometric solutions to estimate age, will participate in a U.K. government program piloting age verification technology for the retail sale of alcohol, according to a press release.

The Home Office invited organizations to propose digital methods of checking customers’ ages while purchasing alcohol. The regulatory “Sandbox” trial will run between January and May 2022, using the technology to help retailers check customers’ ages to prevent alcohol being sold to anyone underage.
