(Dec 02, 2007) On October 29, 2007, the Knesset (Israel's Parliament) approved an amendment to the Protection of Consumers Decree, requiring that every computer game package be labeled in a way to indicate whether its content is suitable for minors who may play the game. The new decree incorporates the European classification system and will require specific labeling for content involving violence, sex, and gambling. Labels based on the European PEGI [Pan European Game Information] age rating system standards are required. In the first year the revised decree's enforcement, additional Hebrew-language labels will also be required.
