Title: Standard for Age Appropriate Digital Services Framework

Scope: This standard is the first in a family of standards focused on the 5Rights principles, and establishes a framework for developing age appropriate digital services for situations where users are children. The framework encompasses the following key areas:

  1. recognition that the user is a child
  2. has considered the capacity and upholds the rights of children
  3. offers terms appropriate to children
  4. presents information in an age appropriate way and
  5. thereby offers a level of validation for service design decisions.

The standard provides a specific impact rating system and evaluation criteria, and sets out how vendors, public institutions and the educational sector can meet the criteria.
