Mobile and online computer games

20 April 2012: Mobile and online computer games bill passes the House of Representatives

On 2 November 2011, the House of Representatives passed the Classification (Publications, Films and Computer Games) Amendment (Online Games) Bill 2011. The Bill will commence once the Senate passes it.

The Bill introduces a two year exemption from classification for both mobile phone games, and computer games that are wholly online. This exemption will not apply to games that are likely to be refused classification. A number of other safeguards will also be in place.

The Government will consider mobile and online computer games as part of its response to the ALRC report on the National Classification Scheme.
