Entertainment and Leisure Software Publishers Association

The Entertainment and Leisure Software Publishers Association (ELSPA) is an organisation set up in 1989 by British software publishers. It was known as The European Leisure Software Publishers Association until 2002.

Between 1994 and Spring 2003 ELSPA voluntarily rated computer games released in Britain that were exempt from legal classification by the BBFC. The ratings given were originally 3-10, 11-14, 15-17 and 18+. Red "X"s would highlight which age group a title was not suitable for, while a .ELSPA are responsible for providing sales charts for computer games sold in the United Kingdom, and promoting anti-piracy initiatives, very much like the music industry's organisation the BPI.It also co-manages the London Games Festival and the Edinburgh Interactive Festival

Notes

The PS1 game based on the CGI cartoon "ReBoot" had a cross in the boxes for 3-10 and 11-14, despite the game is rated E in the US.
