Performer Availability Screening Services

FSC Performer Availability Screening Services (PASS) provides guidelines and services for the adult production industry designed to ensure a safe and healthy work environment of performers and adult film professionals. The program includes:

  • A series of nationwide testing sites providing low cost, high-quality testing in a timely manner
  • Performers have electronic access to testing results directly from labs
  • Variety of medical providers for treatment of performers in need of medical follow-up
  • Consistent standards and guidelines for testing and treatment of adult performers
  • A secure database that ensures performer privacy and protects producer liability
  • Protocol for performer support in the event of a positive HIV test result, including funding for testing of 1st and 2nd generation partners.

The PASS program was developed by industry stakeholders, compliance experts, doctors and attorneys, to uphold performer testing protocols and industry standards for self-regulation.

FSC also operates the Performer Subsidy Fund (PSF) to help subsidize up to three industry standard compliant tests (see PASS) per month.
