OverviewThe mission of the Film and Publication Board (FPB) is to ensure efficient and effective consumer protection through regulation of media content, while empowering the public, especially children, through robust information sharing.
The Board regulates the media environment through the classification of content by: maintaining relevance to the values and norms of South African society through scientific research; balancing the right to freedom of expression with an obligation to protect children from exposure to potentially disturbing, harmful and inappropriate materials; and protecting children from sexual exploitation in media content, in order to educate the broader South African society to make informed choices.
