PEGI's logo

Pan European Game Information, or more commonly abbreviated to PEGI, is a European system for rating the content of computer and video games and other entertainment software. It was developed by the Interactive Software Federation of Europe (ISFE) and came into use in April 2003. The PEGI system is currently used in 31 countries.

Participation is voluntary, at the discretion of the game developer. To obtain the ratings for any piece of software, the developer completes a questionnaire, which is then evaluated by the Netherlands Institute for the Classification of Audiovisual Media (NICAM) and ratings are given. It's based on the Dutch Kijkwijzer system.

There are two parts to the classification for any piece of software; a suggested minimum age and also up to six descriptions of content, such as the use of strong language, violence, etc.

Some countries use their own rating system instead or as well as PEGI. This is often due to national legislation and laws. Examples include Great Britain which often uses the BBFC and Germany which use the USK.

Age ratings

PEGI has five age categories. In the countries of Finland and Portugal, local legislation conflicts with some of the ratings and they are changed accordingly.
