Unterhaltungssoftware Selbstkontrolle (USK)

The USK is the German abbreviation for the Entertainment Software Self-Regulation Body, an organization which has been voluntarily established by the games industry. It is the officially recognized institution responsible for the classification of computer and video games in Germany in accordance with the Children and Young Persons Protection Act (JuSchG) as well as for online contents in accordance with the Youth Protection State Agreement of Minors in the Media (JMStV). At the end of a joint classification procedure for games distributed on physical media, age rating symbols are issued by the relevant state representatives.

Numerous companies have become USK.online members to publicly demonstrate their interest in being compliant with the German youth protection regulations and to enforce a steady cooperation.
