Online youth protection

In Germany, provisions determining which content is relevant to youth protection law include the German Protection of Young Persons Act (JuSchG) and the German Interstate Treaty on the Protection of Minors in the Media (JMStV). The JMStV places every online provider under a legal obligation to assess itself whether its content is problematic for children or adolescents. This evaluation can often be difficult in practice. The FSM helps companies and providers to comply with the legal youth protection regulations and to evaluate the circumstances as regards legalities and technical and educational issues.
