New Zealand Censorship Database

A collection of classification decisions made by various New Zealand censorship bodies. This information is publicly available at https://register.classificationoffice.govt.nz.

The first New Zealand legislation banning indecent material was enacted in 1892, and since then various government agencies have been created for the purpose of censoring publications. This collection exists to improve the accessibility of the censors' decisions.

There are eight different bodies in the official censorship database that have classified publications:
  • Chief Censor of Films (1916–1994)
  • Films Board of Review (1916–1994)
  • Indecent Publications Tribunal (1964–1994)
  • Video Recordings Authority (1987–1994)
  • Video Recordings Board of Review (1987–1994)
  • Office of Film and Literature Classification (1994–)
  • Film & Literature Board of Review (1994–)
  • Court of Appeal of New Zealand (1862–)

Limitations of this collection
This collection is not complete. Currently it contains most decisions made by the OFLC, a limited number of decisions made by the CCF, and no decisions made by the IPT or the VRA.

About half of the decisions in the official censorship database don't have any associated documents, and at the moment those decisions aren't included in this collection.

Decisions made by the Chief Censor of Films in the official censorship database aren't well organised. This collection fixes that by grouping entries from the official database so that one item corresponds to one film (e.g. the film Emmanuelle has eight separate entries in the official database, but just one item page here). Aside from that, the items in this collection should correspond one-to-one with entries in the official censorship database.

Custom metadata fields
Currently all items have four custom metadata fields:

publication-number
medium
submission-channel
highest-restriction
  • The highest level of restriction the publication has had: one of unrestricted, age-restricted, restricted, and banned
  • These are not actual classifications, just categories; see the examples below
  • e.g. unrestricted, age-restricted, restricted, banned

Searching
Custom metadata allows for easier searching of the collection. To perform a search, go to the advanced search page and enter what you want to search for. You can search by the metadata given above using the custom fields on the page. The collection field must be "new-zealand-censorship" to search this collection. If you want to do a more complicated search, you have to submit the query manually.

Any search with an OR condition in it must be done manually, for example "banned games or Blu-ray discs". The query for that search would be "collection:new-zealand-censorship highest-restriction:banned (medium:game OR medium:Blu-ray)".

Example searches:
