The Finnish Centre for Media Education and Audiovisual Media (Finnish: Mediakasvatus- ja kuvaohjelmakeskus or MEKU) is a governmental bureau under the Finnish Ministry of Education responsible for supervising the distribution of audiovisual content (including video games) and advancing media education in Finland. The agency is tasked with maintaining and developing an online content rating system, training independent classifiers and supervising their operation.[1]

MEKU replaced the Finnish Board of Film Classification as the supervising authority on audiovisual program distribution in Finland in the beginning of 2012.[2] But in 2014, it merged again along with National Audiovisual Archive and became the Department of Media Education and Audiovisual Media of the National Audiovisual Institute (Finnish: Kansallinen audiovisuaalinen instituutti or KAVI).[3]
