Issued by the Director of the Classification Board

 

Classification (Markings for Films and Computer Games) Determination 2007

 

 

From 1 July 2007, the Office of Film and Literature Classification (OFLC) will be integrated into the Attorney-General's Department.  As a result of this administrative change, the Classification (Markings for Films and Computer Games) Determination 2007 (the Determination) has been issued with revised classification description boxes which do not refer to the OFLC (Schedule 1, Part 3, Column 6).

 

The Determination commences on 1 July 2007.

 

Section 3 of the Determination revokes the Classification (Markings for Films and Computer Games) Determination 2005.

 

A transitional period will be allowed so that product classified before 1 July 2007 may continue to display the classification description box in effect at the time of classification or can display the revised classification description box that comes into effect from 1 July 2007 (Section 4). Further, product classified after 1 July 2007 may display the classification description box in effect before 1 July 2007 for a period of six months after 1 July 2007.

 

The Determination is a legislative instrument for the purposes of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003.

 

Consultation is unnecessary for this legislative instrument as it has been issued due to an administrative change.
