Age-Verification using Drivers Licences
Retailers who sell regulated goods such as alcohol and tobacco must adhere to federal AAMVA standards to verify customer drivers licence data, including age, date-of-birth, and license expiration date, said Glen Feeley, Vice President, Sales - the Americas, for Datalogic Scanning. Enabling retailers to comply with these regulations, the Gryphon 2D Plus Imager used in conjunction with Datalogics DL parsing logic, which is part of the Datalogic Aladdin software configuration program, eliminates manual data entry, increases efficiency at the retail point-of-sale, and prevents errors in the sale of controlled items.
