Presently the BBFC classify some of the video games released in the UK. This maybe because they forfeit exemption from the Video Recordings Act under a specific clause, are rated PEGI 18+ in line with an industry agreement or via the choice of a publisher.

Our process can be a little different to other ratings bodies, partly because we do have obligations under the legislation which we must comply with. Our games submissions team will be happy to walk through our requirements with publishers/developers in as much detail as they require prior to or during submission. If you have any questions at all, or feedback as we strive to offer the best service possible to the industry - please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Contrary to popular opinion, we also like to play the odd game now and again :)
