MIRACLE v0.93 – Public consultation

MIRACLE specification for electronic age classification information (public consultation)

Policy Field

Protection of minors; consumer information; content classification; data interoperability

Target group(s)

Companies, classification bodies, public authorities, metadata providers, media companies, ICT associations, consumers and all other interested stakeholders

Period of consultation

From 25.06.2014 to 23.07.2014

Objective of the consultation

Age ratings are highly fragmented, both in Europe and globally. In digital contexts, though, electronic age labels open the chance for utilizing classification knowledge across borders. MIRACLE (Machine-readable and interoperable age classification labels in Europe) is a pilot project that aims at providing a common data model for age classification information, implementing it in different national and regional schemes and showing the surplus of interoperable data in applications and end devices. The first step of the project was to develop a common information exchange reference model that will be used as a data specification for all datasets provided troughout the project. The specification proposed here builds on a draft proposed by the Task Force CEO Coalition’s Technical Task Force. By providing a common data scheme, MIRACLE makes rating information machine-readable and technically interoperable. Such data enables software and electronic services to exchange and process data in an easy way, leading to both cost and distribution synergies for classification bodies, content and service providers as well as to more information available in general for parents and consumers. The specification proposed here will serve as a guideline for either existing players planning to implement the data model in their schemes or for new players currently considering labeling content to reduce the risk of sunk costs due to proprietary, less interoperable approaches.
