View Legislation

This Act implements the national classification scheme for films, publications and computer games which is complemented by
state and territory enforcement legislation. Online content is regulated by the Commonwealth's Broadcasting Services Act 1992.

The cooperative classification scheme is made possible by an Intergovernmental Agreement on Censorship made between the

and agreed to by ministers with responsibility for classification matters.

The Act is supplemented by a number of regulations, determinations and legislative instruments which include:
- National Classification Code
- Classification guidelines for Films
- Classification guidelines for Computer Games
- Classification guidelines for Publications
- Classification (Publications, Films and Computer Games) (Markings and Consumer Advice) Determination 2014
