How does Netflix decide the maturity rating on TV shows and movies?

Each TV show and movie on Netflix is assigned a maturity rating to help members make informed choices for themselves and their children. Maturity ratings are either determined by Netflix or by a local standards organization. Netflix determines maturity ratings by the frequency and impact of mature content in a TV show or movie. TV show ratings reflect the overall maturity level of the whole series.

The local TV and movie ratings that fall under each Netflix maturity level may vary by region:

United States
Canada
Latin America
Brazil
United Kingdom
Ireland
Sweden
Denmark
Norway
Finland
Netherlands
Belgium
France
Luxembourg
Switzerland
Austria
Germany
New Zealand
Australia
Iceland
Spain
Portugal
Italy
Japan
South Korea
Singapore
All other countries
