In a statement, the Digital Department of Degree, Culture, Media and Sports said that it will start “next year” now.

“We will take the time to ensure it get right,” added a spokesman.

The regulator, the British Board of Field Classification (BBFC), could not explain how the process will still work.

“This is a scope for government to review the absence of security for privacy and security, but it was thought that this policy was two weeks away from the launch before it was drawn,” said the Open Rights Group’s legal director, Myles Jackman.




“[The government] will have the power to protect confidentiality before making this project a real harm.”

Child Protection
A number of companies developing the age verification tools for the new rules had previously told the BBC that it was unlikely that the deadline would be met.

New rules mean online pornography viewers should prove that they are more than 18 years old to see explicit material on porn sites.

It is part of the Digital Economics Act and it is designed to prevent children “stumble” on clear content.

Possible methods include credit card checks and passport authentication.

“The legislation should still go to the talks and get approved and approved by the parliament”, Agency James Clark said, is an age verification platform created by Mindjack, which is owned by some of the main pornography sites in the world.

“There is set time for such processes, so math just does not seem to be added for it to be ready by April.”

Another company – who asks for anonymity – it is unlikely that something will be ready before the parliament’s summer holidays, which will start on July 20.

BBFI told the BBC that it was aiming to know more details about the process of validation during a month.

In July, Digital Minister Matt Hancock has fixed a date for April 2018 to launch an adult verification scheme.

Many software developers are working on tools to help meet the needs of adult industry.




Warren Russell from W2Global said, “We’re all doing a little bit in the dark and our best educated guesses determine how and what will not be acceptable”.

W2Global is building an AVYourself called tool, and already provides financial services and gambling sector services.

“The real difficulty for the producers is still the guidelines have not been released to regulators,” said Russell.

Alastair Graham, age checkdad, said he was surprised that he was not in public debate near the new system.

“It will affect 20 to 34 million people in the UK,” he told BBC.

“It was about to be fairly recently this date was to be [the end of] April.

“You will have to think more about it will be discussed.

He further added that although some proposals conflict, he thinks it is appropriate to protect children.

“Arrangements are a good thing to make arrangements that parents can not afford to look after their shoulders.”
