The Office of Film and Broadcasting Classification (OFBC) is a statutory classification board formed by the Siroccan Government which classifies films and television shows for exhibition, sale or hire within the Federal Commonwealth of Sirocco since its establishment on 19 January 2012. It is the first micronational classifications board to be formed. Media outlets such as the Siroccan Broadcasting Corporation have their broadcasting content rated by the OFBC before distribution and/or transmission.
