What is an ISRC code?

An International Standard Recording Code (ISRC) is a unique code that is used to identify recorded music and music videos.

ISRCs can be assigned by individual artists, record companies or other third parties known as ISRC Managers under an agreement — you just need a Registrant Code.

If you’re a member of PPL, they will provide you with Registrant Codes for your recordings. You can visit their website for more information. You can also find your ISRCs on our Search Works tool, under the ‘PPL Registrations’ tab.

Please remember ISRCs are assigned once and remain the same for the lifetime of the recording. If the rights to a sound or music video recording are sold that has an ISRC assigned, the new rights owner must not change that ISRC.
