Mission

The AGVOT's main aim is to prohibit the depiction of gratuitous violence on television and to increase sensitivity towards concerns regarding children. It has devised a classification system which the broadcasters use so that viewers can reach a decision as to whether or not the content of the program is suitable for them.
