The ‘Show Me I.D – Be Age Ok’ youth access prevention programme has been developed by a range of trade organisations to provide Irish retailers with advice, support and leading practice on how to avoid the sale of age restricted products to minors. The site contains information on how to refuse a sale and defuse confrontational situations; why recording refusals is important as well as highlighting the legal age at which tobacco and tobacco related products may be sold to consumers. The ‘Training & Support’ section contains an interactive training module that will train retail staff on their responsibilities when it comes to the sale of age restricted products.
Please note that the information contained on this site is intended for retailers and their employees aged 18 years and older.
We hope this site is of benefit to you and your staff!
