Step 3—Displaying the classification and consumer advice on a computer game

Displaying the classification and consumer advice on a computer game

Computer games that are sold or hired in Australia must display the classification markings and consumer advice on the container, wrapping or casing and on the disc or device that contains the game.

The general rules are set out in Part 3 of the Classification (Publications, Films and Computer Games) (Markings and Consumer Advice) Determination 2014.

General information:

  • Markings and related consumer advice must be displayed on containers, slicks and devices.
  • Markings must be placed as close as practicable to the lower left hand corner.
  • Markings must be prominent, readily identifiable, clearly legible and not obscured by other material.
  • Markings must use the correct symbols and colours as prescribed in the Determination.

All of the general information listed above is set out in the Markings Determination. In addition, there are specific provisions for different uses of the markings, such as on an arcade machine, on a disc, on a poster, etcetera. Information on how to use the markings correctly and markings artwork downloads are arranged in topic area sections for ease of access.
