CANOGA PARK, Calif. — The Free Speech Coalition (FSC) today announced 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.

“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,” FSC board vice president, Christian Mann who chairs the PASS program, explained.

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.”

The FSC noted that it operates PASS as a resource for the adult production community and that 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.
