2023 Appropriate filtering and monitoring definitions published

18 May 2023 UK SIC

Following a public consultation, The UK Safer Internet Centre (UKSIC) has published its ‘appropriate’ filtering and monitoring definitions for 2023.  The definitions help both schools and providers understand what is considered ‘appropriate’. 

Alongside the DfE’s introduction of statutory guidance, UKSIC first published its filtering and monitoring definitions in 2016 to help both schools and providers understand what should be considered as ‘appropriate’.   The DfE also published further guidance highlighting new Filtering and Monitoring Standards in March 2023.

Included alongside the 2023 version are documents summarising the substantive changes introduced from 2022 and can be found below
