|Q:||Classification & Rating Information|
Generally, all films (including DVDs, enhanced CDs and videos) which are displayed for sale/hire or being sold/hired must be classified. While there are some films that may be exempt from classification this only applies to a very narrow range of films.
The G, PG and M classifications are advisory only and there are no legal age restrictions regarding the sale or hire of these films. It should be remembered however, that films classified M are not recommended for people under 15 years.
MA15+ and R18+ are legally restricted classifications. Films classified MA15+ can only be sold or hired to people aged 15 years or older, unless they are accompanied by their parent or guardian, or in Queensland by an adult. Films classified R18+ can only be sold or hired to adults aged 18 years and over.
