Issued Date: 11/04/2023

Distributors of video games and distributors of non-age restricted films are regulated under the respective class licences today. The IMDA intends to also move distributors of both video games and non-age restricted films (“mixed distributors”) from individual licence to class licence. This will be done by amending the Films (Class Licence for Video Games Distribution) Order (“Video Games Class Licence”) to include mixed distributors.

The requirements for classification, affixing of classification labels and consumer advice (where applicable), and conditions relating to demonstration of video games continue to apply. There is no licence fee or security deposit imposed under the Video Games Class Licence.

The notice on the proposed amendment to the Video Games Class Licence is available here (963.81KB).

Pursuant to Section 10A(5)(c) of the Films Act, interested persons are invited to make representations on the proposed amendment to the Video Games Class Licence by no later than 12 May 2023, 5pm, in the manner specified in Part 2 of this paper.

Please email your representations, with the subject header “Representations on Proposed Amendment to the Video Games Class Licence” to:
