Submission: Films, Videos, and Publications Classification (Commercial Video On-Demand) Amendment Bill

Submissions

4 February 2020

We firmly endorse the intent of the Films, Videos, and Publications Classification (Commercial Video On-Demand) Amendment Bill (the Bill) to classify commercial online video content. We seek that implementation of the Bill be child-centred and there are measures in place to ensure this, such as holding a high standard for checking classifications against the criteria to make the system as robust as possible. 

The Bill is a step in the right direction towards all media having a consistent and appropriate classification system to enable children, young people and their whānau to make informed choices about their viewing and to protect children from viewing harmful material.
