APHSS Changes Name to ‘PASS’

FSC-PASS-logo_smallThe Free Speech Coalition (FSC) today is pleased to announce that APHSS (Adult Production Health & Safety Services), the adult performer-testing program, will change its name to PASS, an acronym for Performer Availability Screening Services.

The change is effective as of today. Visitors to the former APHSS.org website will be redirected to FSCPASS.org. Additionally, FSCPASS.com will also redirect to the FSCPASS.org landing page.

FSC Board Vice President, Christian Mann who chairs the program now known as PASS, explained, “The reasons for the change are simple and logical. First, we wanted an acronym that was easier to remember and pronounce. Second, ‘Performer Availability Screening Services’ is a much more accurate description of what we provide.”

Mann added the following about the current role of the PASS system: “The testing facilities, and their affiliated doctors, provide the health and safety component for our performers. We (FSC) just provide the database and its oversight management so producers and performers can obtain reliable and verifiable availability information without compromising medical privacy. No small feat, but nothing we’ve seen comes closer. This one hub has been an invaluable resource. I’m pleased that we have participation from all the testing facilities that comprise the overwhelming choice of performers and agents in the industry. Further, participation in the program is open to all, independent of a participant’s membership, or lack of membership in the FSC.”

More about PASS: FSC operates PASS as a resource for the adult production community. The database system upholds rigorous standards for performer testing, as well as medical and safety protocols for its testing facilities. FSC encourages all adult performers and producers to utilize the PASS system.
