Consultation description

This consultation seeks views on two matters: whether to make changes to the exemptions from classification set out in section 2 of the Video Recordings Act 1984 (“the VRA”) and whether to amend the Licensing Act 2003 to remove any requirement for the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) to have a role in age rating advertisements shown in cinemas.

This consultation will be of interest to a wide range of stakeholders including producers, publishers and distributors of content released as hard copy video recordings (DVDs, Blu-ray, VHS etc), advertising agencies, trade associations, cinema operators, retailers, classification bodies, enforcement agencies, consumer groups, children’s groups, parents and teachers.
