UK Internet Porn Censorship

The Digital Economy Act  has been passed Parliament and  will lead to the mass blocking of internet porn to all UK residents. This includes the free tube sites and is not restricted to UK based websites.

See Details of the UK internet porn censorship regime in the Digital Economy Act

See UK Internet Censorship for ongoing news

The BBFC  has now been given a new role as the UK internet porn censor. Final BBFC guidelines  were published n October 2018.

The remaining implementation of age verification is  roughly scheduled as follows:

 December 2018 Parliament to consider and approve the BBFC final guidelines

3 months for the implementation of the technological solutions.

March 2019: Introduction of voluntary scheme to accredit age verification services

Commencement of the BBFC censorship and age verification law will be on 15th July. Presumably there is a 3 month period after that to allow websites to implement the available age verification services
