PEGI Online

PEGI Online was launched in 2007 as an addition to the PEGI system to give young people in Europe better protection against unsuitable online gaming content and to help parents understand the risks within this environment. PEGI Online is based on four cornerstones:

  • the PEGI Online Safety Code and Framework Contract which is signed by all participants
  • the PEGI Online Logo which will be displayed by holders of a licence
  • a dedicated webpage for applicants and for the general public
  • an independent administration, advice and dispute settlement process.
The licence to display the PEGI Online Logo is granted by the PEGI Online Administrator to any online gameplay service provider that meets the requirements set out in the PEGI Online Safety Code (POSC). These requirements include the obligation to keep the website free from illegal and offensive content created by users and any undesirable links, as well as measures for the protection of young people and their privacy when engaging in online gameplay.
