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 2015, IFCO classified 903 cinema works (including trailers) and 4065 video works.
