Step 2—How many items to classify or certify?

How many items to classify or certify?

Prosecution of an offence related to unclassified, RC or X18+ films

In all jurisdictions it is possible to prosecute a case on the basis of a single item of material.

Forfeiture of material

In all jurisdictions material which is used as the basis for a prosecution is forfeited to the Crown upon conviction.

  • In some jurisdictions (Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and West Australia), if 10 or more items are used as the basis for a conviction then all other films, publications or computer games seized at the same time as the prosecution material is also forfeited.
  • Victoria also has a commercial quantity provision, where all material in a seizure is forfeited if a prosecution is obtained on the basis of 50 or more items.

Please call the Classification Enforcement Contact for your state or territory (details available from the Enforcement package) to discuss the classification quantities required for your desired outcome before sending applications to the Classification Board.
