Step 4 - Displaying the classification and consumer advice on a submittable publication

Displaying the classification and consumer advice on a submittable publication

Submittable publications that are sold in Australia must display the classification marking and consumer advice on the publication and any wrapping (if required).

The rules are set out in the Classification (Publications, Films and Computer Games) (Markings and Consumer Advice) Determination 2014, and describe the markings and how they should be shown on the covers and packaging of publications.

Generally:

  • Markings and related consumer advice must be displayed on the front face or cover of the publication.
  • Markings must be displayed on opaque packaging, where needed.
  • 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.
