Getting it wrong

There’s a lot more to getting it wrong than losing your business for a fixed period – the consequences may be much more damaging into the future too. Consider for a moment.

 

Getting it right

By understanding the legislation and how it impacts on you AND by using the training tips, advice and support this site can offer, you can get it right from the start.

 

Ideas for a Clear Store Policy

  1. Our staff have been trained not to sell tobacco to people under the age of 18.
    We are all committed to upholding the law, not to do so could mean job losses.
  2. We display signs to let customers know in advance that we will not sell to people under
    the age of 18.
  3. To ensure we comply with the law, we insist on a valid photo ID from anyone who appears that they may be under the age to buy products that have an age restriction applied.
  4. We will not sell tobacco to anyone without a valid photo ID if we are unsure as to whether they are under the legal age to be sold tobacco products.
  5. If we are in any doubt, we will not sell tobacco to anyone without a valid photo ID.
  6. We are always polite and respectful, but firm, with our underage customers.
  7. We keep a record of all refused sales.
