The ESRB system was used by some Brazilian distributors and was not translated from English or adapted to the Brazilian culture, being inappropriate for the Brazilian market and leaving most consumers uninformed. It was introduced by Senator José Gregori, that the growing game market in Brazil needed bigger control over the countless games sold in the country every day.
Since 2001, games are rated in Brazil by the DJCTQ rates movies, games and television programs in Brazil. It is controlled by the Ministry of Justice (Ministério da Justiça). The ClassInd rating system is the same for games, films and television programs. Rating is mandatory for all games released in Brazil. A consequence, is that several online stores do not sell games, or are not even available to Brazil.
