What are RSS Feeds?
RSS stands for Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication. RSS feeds are used to publish frequently updated works in a standardised format.
RSS feeds from classification.gov.au include the latest classification decisions and upcoming releases added to the National Classification Database (NCD). This means you can subscribe and automatically get updated with the latest classification decisions added to the NCD as soon as they are available.

Can I filter the feed information?
Yes, filtering is easy with the RSS feed – once you view the feed, you will see various parameters you can filter by, including:
all items or only the newest entries;
by ‘category’ – by the type of decision (film/computer game/publication) and classification decision (you can only select a filter where results are available)
You can also sort information by date, title or author.
To use the filter and sort options, simply click on the item you want to filter/sort by and the details will be displayed.
