Censor Cuts Index

BBFC logo MPAA logo

The British Board of Film Classifications are the state designated censors of all video media sold in the UK.

The BBFC are also the cinema censors, but in this capacity, the ultimate decision rests with local councils. BBFC certificates though are generally accepted by the local authorities.

In recent years the BBFC has done a very good in making their decisions accessible to all.
