In the British Board of Film Classification's continuous effort  to gain more UK rating system support, the company is now planning to seek classification in online interaction.

According to the British news source, Telegraph, the UK Council for Child Safety will be monitoring the standard that will be established in the coming months. Due to the mass popularity of online games such as World of Warcraft, the online classification will establish a "single set of standards and good practice for managing the risks of online gaming," according to the report.

However, according to Telegraph, it seems that UK game developers are opposing against the BBFC's decision in classifying online games. An executive from the Entertainment & Leisure Software Publishers Association even said that, "Moving to more ratings by the BBFC would be a step backwards". PEGI, who is the known competitor against the BBFC rating system, is currently supported by big game companies such as Nintendo and Electronic Arts.
