APHSS Offering Industry Speedy Performer Medical Test Verification

CANOGA PARK, Calif. — In an effort to speed up verification of medical tests for performers in light of the recent film production moratorium, Adult Production Health & Safety Services (APHSS.org) is requesting that producers and agents directly contact the organization.

Producers and agents can contact APHSS by phone at (818) 348-9373, or by emailing jane@freespeechcoalition.com.

“For performers that have chosen not to participate in the APHSS database, we can verify that they received syphilis testing and treatment with a phone call or an email,” Free Speech Coalition (FSC) CEO Diane Duke said. “We understand that many performers are anxious to go back to work, and producers need to book production schedules – to speed the process, we want to provide the fastest options to getting everyone cleared for production.”

Duke added, “Due to recent events, which have been difficult for performers, producers and agents, we want to make sure that everyone receives appropriate services and gets assistance as quickly as possible.

“We want to thank everyone for their patience and understanding – this situation was a new one for the industry and we are grateful for the cooperation of industry members at this time.”

The FSC operates the APHSS.org program, which provides performers with testing services that include needed follow-up healthcare services with medical professionals.
