The national (Englsh) is called ENTCS
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_National_Concessionary_Travel_Scheme

The smartcard technology is ITSO
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ITSO_Ltd

London Transport's Oyster travel cards pre-date ITSO and Oyster cardreaders, and cardreaders on London buses (not the same thing) used not to accept ENTCS bus passes. IME some now do, and some don't.

But there is no obligation or legal requirement to touch any reader, and there's no advantage in doing so. (Unless, like me, you're curious to know what will happen ;) And you can board at an 'exit-only' door - where there is no reader.
