In the context of the International Telecommunication Union’s Child Online Protection (ITU COP) initiative, a set of Guidelines for Industry have been prepared, working towards better safety for children when using Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). The guide aims to provide advice on how industry can work to help ensure children’s safety when using such technology. After an initial consultation of the ITU COP members, the draft guidelines were open to a broader consultation in November and December 2013. PEGI S.A., the not-for-profit organisation that manages the pan-European age rating system for video games (PEGI) sent in a response on behalf of the video games industry.
The final Guidelines for Industry can be read here, and more details on the response by PEGI S.A. can be found in the document below.
