UK media regulators launch parents website

posted on 11 October, 2011   (public)

On 11 October 2011, UK media regulators launched ParentPort, a new website aimed at helping parents make their views heard on issues relating to programmes, adverts, products and services.

ParentPort has been set up to make it easier for parents to complain about material they have seen or heard across the media, communications and retail industries.

The website has been jointly developed by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), the Authority for Television On Demand (ATVOD), the BBC Trust, the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), the Office of Communications (Ofcom), the Press Complaints Commission (PCC) and the Video Standards Council (VSC)/Pan-European Game Information (PEGI).

It has been created in response to Reg Baileys Independent Review of the Commercialisation and Sexualisation of Childhood , which recommended that regulators should work together to create a single website to act as an interface between themselves and parents.
