I would like to request to IMDb Staff to add, if possible, two new Certificate (Rating) options for the country Chile, in order to be able to add the Netflix self-rating of several TV Shows and Movies: 13+ (Netflix self-rating) and 16+ (Netflix self-rating).

In Chile there's only the following Ratings, given by the Consejo de Calificación Cinematográfica (Cinematographic Qualification Council): TE (Todo Espectador, All Audiences), TE+7 (Todo Espectador +7, All Audiences but strongly advised for children only above 7 years old), 14 (above 14 years old) and 18 (above 18 years old, the legal age of "adulthood"). There are old Ratings that apply historically, like the "Banned" rating given to hundreds of films and documentaries during the military dictatorship and some short-lived TV Rating System with letters, all of this are part of the options for Chile in IMDb, thank you for that.

Now, Netflix is quite massive in Chile, being the first streaming service to be available in the country and having some well known quality productions. The issue is that Netflix self-rating it's not equivalent with any of the Chilean ratings.

I'm attaching two screenshots as proof of the Netflix self-ratings of 13+ and 16+ (marked in blue), not recognizables legally in Chile, since Netflix is not  certificated by any Chilean agency, being internet content. But the fact is that those ratings do exist and it would be great to have them as options for Chile.

Please excuse any spelling or redaction mistake, and the fact that I gave too much background info.

tldr: The request is to add the Ratings (Certificates) for Chile of "13+ (Netflix self-rating)" and "16+ (Netflix self-rating)".

I hope it is factible and thank you very much!
