Film Certificates in Netherlands

Under Dutch law, children are admitted to films carrying an age rating if accompanied by an adult except in the case of “16” rated films.

AL – All Ages

6 – Potentially harmful to children under 6 years.

9 – Potentially harmful to children under 9 years.

12 – Potentially harmful to children under 12 years; broadcasting is not allowed before 8:00 pm.

16 –  Potentially harmful to children under 16 years; broadcasting is not allowed before 10:00 pm.

Mostly, these icons are used along with other symbols, displaying if a movie contains violence, sexual content, frightening scenes, drug or alcohol abuse, discrimination, or coarse language. These symbols are also used for TV-programs in the Netherlands.
