ACCM survey: Does Australia's classification system suit the needs of your family?
This is your chance to tell us whether Australia's classification system for films and games suits your family's needs.
Australia's present classification system for movies and games uses the classifications G, PG, M, MA15+ and R18+. All except R18+ are about suitability for people under and over the age of 15 years.
Our new survey is designed to find out how helpful, or not, this system is for your family, and whether it could be improved.
