We work with the global internet industry, governments and law enforcement agencies to fight child sexual abuse imagery and videos online. We’re supported by our internet industry Members and the European Commission. Together, we work to remove illegal images of children, wherever they’re hosted in the world. Our partnerships make a real difference.
We work continuously to increase public awareness of our reporting function so that you know what to do if you accidentally see these types of images.
We are a global membership organisation and offer unique services to the internet industry in order to help them make their services safer for their customers and prevent misuse of their systems.

Many countries don’t have a dedicated hotline to take reports on online child sexual abuse images and videos. To help these countries, we offer a Reporting Solution so these countries can offer a reporting facility to their citizens without setting up a dedicated hotline.

In order to effectively remove child sexual abuse material from the internet, we work with the police globally to support their efforts to bring offenders to justice.

We use the term child sexual abuse to reflect the gravity of the images and videos we deal with. Child pornography, child porn and kiddie porn are not acceptable descriptions. A child cannot consent to their own abuse.
