Online retailers of packaged media products such as DVD and Blu-ray are entitled to use BBFC age ratings - in text or as symbols - free of charge, with reference to our General Free Licence which can be found below.


If you make digital video assets available alongside your packaged media retail service, you must become a Licensed BBFC Digital Service to use BBFC age ratings. More details here.

We can supply rich metadata in a number of formats, and provide BBFC symbols that are more suitable for small resolution screens.

If you would like to use our age ratings and symbols on your online retail service please contact for more information.
