As a result of the Administrative Arrangement Order introduced on 5 December 2019, the functions that were previously the responsibility of the Department of Communications and the Arts have been transferred to the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications as of 1 February 2020.
Films, computer games and publications must be sold, hired, advertised and exhibited under the title with which they were originally classified.
If the title of your film, computer game or publication changes after it has been classified - and the content has not changed - you must apply to have the title updated on the classification certificate.
A new certificate will be issued and the new title will be registered on the National Classification Database.
