The Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) is a State Corporation established under the Films and Stage Plays Act Cap 222 of the Laws of Kenya to regulate the creation, broadcasting, possession, distribution and exhibition of film and broadcast content with the aim of promoting our culture, National values and aspirations as well as protecting children against exposure to harmful content. The Kenya Information and Communications Act (KICA) empowers the Board to impose age restrictions to ensure that content which depicts or contains scenes that are rated as adult or are of the language intended for adult audiences are not aired during the watershed period (between 5am –10 pm). KICA also mandates the Board to enforce the programming Code for the free-to-air radio and TV services by ensuring that all programme and non-programme matter, namely: commercials, infomercials, documentaries, programme promotions, programme listings, community service announcements and station identifications are classified before they air.
