The uk government has confirmed that a controversial mandatory age verification for pornography on-line visitors will not be introduced in April as planned.

In a statement, the Department of Digital Culture, Media and Sport said that he was going to start now “, later in the year.”

“We have to take the time to make sure that we get it right,” added a spokesman.

The regulator, the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), it has yet to explain how the process of work.

“This is an opportunity for the government to rethink the lack of guarantees for the privacy and security, but it is frightening to consider that this policy was two weeks of release before he pulled out,” said the Open Rights Group legal director, Myles Jackman.

“[The government] must introduce powers to protect the privacy of immediately before this scheme to cause real damage.”Protection of the childhood

Several companies developing tools for age verification to the new regulation, previously, had told the BBC that they thought that it was unlikely that the deadline would be met.

The new rule means the online porn viewers will have to prove that they are over 18 years of age to view explicit material on porn sites.

It is part of the Law of the Digital Economy, and is designed to prevent children from “stumbling” with explicit content.

The possible methods include credit card, checks, and passport authentication.

“The regulation still has to get out of the query, and has to be discussed and approved by the Parliament,” said James Clark, of AgeID, a verification of the age of the platform developed by MindGeek, which owns some of the world leaders in pornography sites.

“There are a number of times for these processes, so that the math simply does not add up to be ready in April.”

Another company that asked to remain anonymous – said that it was unlikely that anything would be ready before Parliament’s summer recess, which begins on July 20.

The BBFC told the BBC that it was with the aim of sharing the details on the verification process in a single month.

The past month of July, Digital Minister Matt Hancock set for April 2018, deadline for the introduction of a scheme of verification of age.

Several software developers are working on tools to help the adult industry to comply with the requirement.

“We’re all working a little in the dark and make our best educated guesses as to what will and will not be acceptable,” said Warren Russell, of W2Global.

W2Global is the construction of a tool called AVYourself, and already provides services to the financial services and gambling sectors.

“The real difficulty for providers is that the regulators have not published guidelines,” Mr. Russell added.

Alistair Graham, of the Age-Marked, and said that he was surprised that there had not been any public debate around the new rule.

“It’s going to affect the 20 to 34 million people in the uk,” he told the BBC.

“Until relatively recently the date was supposed to be effective,” [the] at the end of April.

“I would have thought that there would be more discussion about it.

He added that although some opposed the proposal, he thought that it’s worth it to protect children.

“Measures to make it easier for the parents to be sure that they do not have to be looking over your child’s shoulder all the time is a good thing.”
