Age restricted products

How we protect children and young people by enforcing the law to prohibit underage sales of age restricted products.

We work to ensure that traders have procedures and resources in place to prevent sales to underage children.

Working closely with Suffolk Constabulary and licensing authorities, we carry out covert test purchase operations on businesses who sell age restricted products.

Using volunteers, often between the ages of 15 and 17, we carry out test purchases of age restricted products to ensure shops and businesses are complying with the law.
