Welcome to the USK

USK is the German abbreviation for the Entertainment Software Self-Regulation Body, an organisation which has been voluntarily established by the computer games industry. It is responsible for the classification of computer games in Germany. At the end of a joint classification procedure, age rating symbols are issued by the relevant state representatives. This system ensures that computer games are only sold to children and young persons if the contents of the games have been approved as suitable. The categorisations used are based on the German Children and Young Persons Act. The aim of this site is to provide you with information about the work we do. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to Contact us.
