BERLIN — Providing the newest insider insights into one of the most confusing issues facing adult website owners in 2019, the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) will present an exclusive update on the rollout of mandatory age verification in the United Kingdom at the upcoming XBIZ Berlin show.

BBFC Policy Director Murray Perkins will be on hand to update attendees on the repeated setbacks the law’s implementation has been subjected to, along with a revised implantation timeline and tips for all site owners who are serious about protecting their businesses and protecting minors.

“The introduction of age verification in the U.K. has been delayed,” Perkins told XBIZ, “but the U.K. government remains committed to it and it’s wise to ensure that the industry is prepared for when the law becomes live.”

Perkins will update stakeholders on the newest developments in the U.K., along with the broader European regulatory scene, and why and how the industry should prepare for change.

The Q&A session with Perkins is set for Tuesday, September 11, from 1-1:50 p.m. in the Theatre of Konf II.
