The correct labelling of an Internet offer can prove difficult in practice.
To make it easier for providers to create a technical age label that complies with the required standard, the FSM provides a free age classification system.
The age classification system allows providers to
- use technical means to label their website in such a way that youth protection programmes are able to recognise it.
- check the validity of an existing technical labelling.
- read out existing age labels from individual sub-pages.
Age labels help youth protection programmes to show children only what is suitable for them and providers to offer their content in conformity with the law.
Information on the technical labelling standard can be found here.
