The Entertainment Software Self-Regulation Body (USK) continues to be the official youth protection partner of gamescom.
In order to fully guarantee the protection of minors online as well, gamescom (Koelnmesse GmbH) has joined the USK through a membership, which ensures the protection of minors on gamescom’s own channels by the USK.
This year, submission for examination of individual content to the USK is only obligatory for content which contains unconstitutional symbols according to German law. Also for all other types of content the USK is prepared to certify can also classify presentations, trailers, demos, streams and other content in order to ensure that your online presence complies with the youth protection regulations and to be able to indicate the relevance of the content for the protection of minors by displayable USK logos.
Due to the partnership with the USK, the focus can once more be set on light-hearted gaming fun and enjoyment of the gaming culture. For children the installation of youth protection solutions like JusProg ( www.jugendschutzprogramm.de ) on the respective devices is recomended.
