The bill regarding the eradication of pornography among children was adopted by the Commission for Culture of the Romanian Senate. Websites with adult content will be compelled to obtain a certification from the Ministry of Communications.
They will also be compelled by law to set a password for accessing the website. Users of these websites will also have to pay an additional fee that will be registered on their internet bill.
In this way, parents will be able to see if their children have accessed websites for adults.
The cost of this additional fee as well as the certification criteria will be decided by the Ministry of Communications.
The ministry will also be able to block the adult content websites if these do not comply with certain conditions.
Any company or individual that has a website distributing adult content is compelled to notify the Ministry of Communications within 10 days and also fulfill the following criteria: it must contain a warning regarding the content, allow access only after checking the age of the users and show the number of times the website was accessed.
It is considered pornographic material anything that is an object, engraving, photography, hologram, drawing, writing, imprint, logo, publication, film, video and audio recording, advertising spot, program and IT application, music and any other type of expression that explicitly presents sexual activity.
