Before applying

Account setup for new applicants

If you don't have an account with us, you will need to set one up before you can apply.

You can apply for an account online via the classification portal.

Further information including the user guide is available from our classification portal page.

Alternatively, you will find the downloadable forms you need to apply and contact information in this guide.

Any applications or payments you send in may be delayed until your account is set up.

Account maintenance for existing applicants

If you are an existing client and your business contact details have changed, you need to tell us about the changes.

Similarly, existing applicants can update their details via the classification portal or via the downloadable form.

If you have changed your business name or ABN, please contact Accounts to discuss your needs.

To request a user ID and password, email portal@classification.gov.au.

Database checks

You need to check the Classification database to see whether any of the material you will be submitting has been classified before.

If your game is a modified version of a previously classified computer game, you will need to get it classified unless the modification:

  • is a minor and/or technical modification, or a conversion from 2D to 3D (and vice versa), and
  • does not have a material effect on the gameplay of the original game, and
  • does not change the title of the original game, and
  • is not likely to cause the modified game to be given a different classification to the original game.
