Classify a computer game


If you want to distribute copies of your computer game, you need to get it classified.

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.

You will find information about the cost, what you need to send us and how long it will take.

You will also find the forms you need in order to apply and contact information in this guide.

If you want to apply for classification using the Assessed Computer Games scheme, you need to look at the Assessed Computer Games guide.
