Classification Markings on Film and Computer Games
Films (including public exhibition and DVD) and computer games may be classified G, PG, M or MA 15+. Films can also be classified R 18+ or X 18+.
Please note: Classifications of R 18+ and X 18+ are not applicable for computer games.
Each classification is coloured. G is green, PG is yellow, M is blue, MA 15+ is red and R 18+ and X 18+ are both black. The examples below display the three main components of a classification marking:
- classification symbol
- classification description
- consumer advice, which is specific to each film and computer game, and which informs consumers about some of the content in a film or computer game.
