A new “Kitemark for Child Safety Online has been launched with the Home Office and Ofcom to provide consumers – especially parents – reassurance that their children will not be subjected to undesirable web content.”
Becta have played a key role in providing the technical expertise which underpins this new kitemark.
It’s aimed at the home market, and any products badged under this quality assurance scheme will help parents to judge products which have been rigorously tested to a set of standards.
The aim of the Kitemark is to raise the standard of filtering, monitoring and blocking applications in the UK. It gives software developers the ability to demonstrate their products meet the highest available standards and provided users with confidence that it will offer some of the best protection for children.
The Kitemark has already been awareded to over 60 organisations/products.
