​How much does it cost?

Fees

The Classification (Publications, Films and Computer Games) Regulations 2005 provide each State and Territory with 100 free ‘eligible documents’ each calendar year if the request for the eligible document relates to the enforcement of State and Territory laws for the purposes of the classification scheme.

What is an eligible document?

An eligible document is:

  • an application for the classification of a publication, film or computer game (including the simultaneous issue of an evidentiary certificate)
  • a copy of a classification certificate or of a notice of classification decision under section 26 of the Classification Act
  • an evidentiary certificate issued under section 87 of the Classification Act certifying an item has been previously classified, or is not yet classified

Exceeding the 100 free eligible document quota

If a State or Territory exceeds the 100 free eligible documents quota within a calendar year, any subsequent applications will attract the following fees:

  • 50 per cent of the prescribed fee in the Regulations, for:
    • the classification of a publication, film or computer game, or
    • a copy of a classification certificate or of a notice of classification decision
  • The full prescribed fee in the Regulations, for:
    • an evidentiary certificate issued under section 87 of the Classification Act

If a fee applies to the enforcement application, you do not have to include the fee with your application. An invoice will be issued to your Local Area Command (LAC), usually at the end of the calendar year.

Please refer to the Commercial How to Apply sections for Films, Computer Games and Publications for more information about prescribed fees for classification services.
