What is IMPEL? 

What is IMPEL?

Independent Music Publishers’ E-Licensing (IMPEL) is a collective of independent publishers who have joined together to license their Anglo-American mechanical digital rights on a pan-European basis.


IMPEL gives independent publishers the same benefits that the individual major publishers have achieved by licensing their mechanical rights on a multi-territory basis through one rights manager.

Is IMPEL open to new members?

Yes. IMPEL operates entry dates of 1 January, 1 April, 1 July and 1 October each year. There is a lead-time of three to six months prior to each entry date in order to allow both us and you to complete essential preparatory work so that your repertoire can be licensed without conflicting claims.
