IFCO, a statutory body first established in 1923, is responsible for examining and certifying all cinema films and videos/DVDs distributed in Ireland.
Our aim is to provide the public and parents in particular with a modern and dependable system of classification that:
- protects children and young persons
- has regard for freedom of expression
- has respect for the values of Irish society
In 2017, IFCO classified 1,072 cinema works (including trailers) and 3,089 video works.
