The Amalgamated Film Rating Board (AFRB) is an organisation responsible for video work (film, television programmes, commercials, public information, etc.) classification in the Cupertino Alliance and its member states. It was founded by the Medellín Agreement on Film Classification, with its ratings based off the Official New Eiffel Ratings Board, which merged with the AFRB.
Responsibilities and powers
The AFRB has jurisdiction to all members who ratify the agreement. Restrictions to persons who may view each films (i.e. whether or not someone under the age of 18 may get in trouble for viewing an 18+ rated film) may vary by member state.
The AFRB may give a film any rating it deems. The film does not need to fulfill all of the criteria. Any decisions may be appealed by the filmmaker, and the AFRB will take it into consideration. The AFRB can classify a film from one of seven ratings:
