Programs broadcast on television - do I submit to the Classification Board?


Television stations make their own classification decisions on programs not classified by the Classification Board.  

This guide helps you to find out who is responsible for classifying television programs on free-to-air and Pay TV stations, the codes of practice that apply to television broadcasters, and who you can make a complaint to about something you saw on TV.

If you want to have episodes of TV programs classified to sell on DVD, Bluray or other formats, please view the guide relating to Film for sale or hire for information about how to apply.
