APHSS.org and TTS Agree to Incorporate TTS Results into APHSS Database

Diane Duke

Adult Production Health & Safety Services (APHSS.org) today announced that it will start to receive Talent Testing Service, Inc. (TTS) data into the APHSS database via an electronic transfer protocol. While TTS is a non-APHSS provider, FSC and TTS have agreed that a comprehensive information source for performer availability is critical to support industry protocols.

Earlier it was reported that TTS did not meet all of the APHSS qualifications for performer care and therefore did not qualify as an APHSS provider. Moreover, TTS stated that they were not interested in being an APHSS provider.

This conflict posed a problem for performers and producers who wanted to utilize both APHSS and TTS.  After a number of discussions, TTS and APHSS have come to an agreement. “The electronic transfer of TTS data into the APHSS database as a non-APHSS provider seemed like the best compromise for the good of the industry,” explained Diane Duke FSC Executive Director.

“Although we (TTS) will continue to provide results via our own web portal, providing accessibility in the APHSS database benefits the industry as a whole.” said Sixto Pacheco, CCRC, President & CEO of TTS.

Currently, APHSS and TTS are working together to coordinate the technical steps for data compatibility.  As soon as those steps are worked out, TTS information will be available on the APHSS database.

FSC is holding a meeting to go over the APHSS program, industry protocols, what to do in the case of an HIV positive result, and an update on mandatory condom ordinances. The meeting is Tuesday, July 10, 1pm PDT and will be held at the Majestic Plaza, 18341 Sherman Way, Ste 207 (upstairs), in Reseda, CA (Parking available in the back).

For those who are unable to attend in person, a video broadcast of the meeting will be streamed live to industry members on July 10 at 1pm PDT, on XBIZ.net. If you would like to access the live broadcast, sign in or register at XBIZ.net. A link to the broadcast will appear inside XBIZ.net on the date of the meeting along with a pre-broadcast email notification.
