The Films and Publications Act, 1996 (the Act), requires all films, interactive computer games, and
publications with 'tor adults only" content, to be classified by the Film and Publication Board (the "Board',
before they may be distributed by way of sale, hire or exhibition in South Africa.
The purpose of classification is to protect children from exposure to potential.ly disturbing and harmful
materials and from premature exposure to adult experiences, as well as to provide such cautionary information
as will allow adult South Africans to make informed viewing and reading choices, both for themselves and for
children in their care. These Guidelines set out the criteria which must be applied by the Board and Review
Board in making classification decisions.
