It's ISO-8859-1.

Both certificates.list.gz and mpaa-ratings-reasons.list.gz are rather straightforward to parse.

For the US, you will get something along these lines out of certificates.list.gz:

USA:(Banned)
USA:12
USA:AO
USA:Approved
USA:C
USA:E
USA:E10+
USA:G
USA:GP
USA:K-A
USA:M
USA:M/PG
USA:NC-17
USA:Not Rated
USA:Open
USA:PG
USA:PG-13
USA:Passed
USA:R
USA:T
USA:TV-14
USA:TV-G
USA:TV-MA
USA:TV-PG
USA:TV-Y
USA:TV-Y7
USA:Unrated
USA:X

And as mentioned, imdbpy handles all this out-of-the-box if you don’t feel like doing it yourself.
