This section is for all webmasters. Whether you're building a personal website or building a high-end commercial web property, this is the starting point for all advice on labelling content.

Note: In July 2005 ICRA labelling moved to a new platform to take advantage of broader developments on the internet and with other digital media. If you are a webmaster with a label obtained before July 2005 (i.e. a PICS label) visiting this section for help with labelling, please go to the label generator and obtain a new (RDF) label. Your new label will include a PICS tag based on the updated vocabulary.

This section will help you place and link your new label.

Internet Explorer's Content Advisor

In July 2005 ICRA changed from using a labelling system based on the PICS platform to one based on a system known as RDF. However, many sites are still labelled using the older PICS labels, and since April 2006 ICRA has included a simplified PICS version of the current vocabulary along with its RDF labels. Microsoft includes support for PICS labels in Content Advisor, the filter built into its browser since 1996. Content Advisor can therefore be used with the ICRA system to offer a degree of parental control.
