10 December 2012: R18+ computer games information products developed for industry

10 December 2012: R18+ computer games information products developed for industry

A range of information products have been developed to assist retailers in preparation of R18+ for computer games on 1 January 2013.

The R 18+ computer games package consists of:

  • An A4 revised classification poster (known as the approved notice) that explains all the classifications and is required to be displayed in stores where films or games are sold or hired
  • An A4 in-store signage explaining that R18+ for computer games commences on 1 January 2013
  • A question and answer sheet prepared to assist staff in understanding the restrictions on selling or hiring R 18+ computer games, and
  • A table listing the offences in each state and territory in relation to the sale or hire of R 18+ computer games.

Printed hard copies of the classification poster (approved notice) and the in store signage are available by contacting the Classification Liaison Scheme on 02 9289 7100 or cls@classification.gov.au. Should you require a landscape version of the approved notice this can be downloaded from the Specific provisions and downloads page.
