A certificate was a non-compulsory and advisory certificate given to BBFC films from 1912 until 1982 that contained content that might be unsuitable for younger children. In the certificate's earliest days, A certificate requires that children be accompanied by adults during the film, but that was not until 1932. In 1982, as part of an overhaul of the ratings, it was replaced by the PG rating.
