Introduction of R18+ for computer games

20 April 2012: Introduction of R 18+ for computer games

On 19 March 2012, the House of Representatives passed the Classification (Publications, Films and Computer Games) Amendment (R18+ Computer Games) Bill 2012.

Once passed by the Senate, the Bill will commence on 1 January 2013. This will give the States and Territories enough time to amend their own classification legislation to allow for R18+ computer games.
