​Why do I need to do this?

General rules

Most computer games, whether local or imported, have to be classified before they can be sold, hired, advertised or distributed in Australia.

The exceptions are:

  • if a computer game has been previously classified in Australia, irrespective of how long ago or which platform it was classified on, then it does not need to be reclassified provided there has been no change to gameplay, sound or graphics
  • some computer games may be exempt from classification requirements—please see Exemptions for more information.
