About the Agency

The Recording Industry Association of America has been appointed by the International ISRC Agency to oversee the ISRC system within the United States and its territories. As the U.S. Agency, we promote and monitor the ISRC system within the United States and its territories.

We regularly perform the following duties:

  • ISRC Registrant Code Allocation
    We allocate Registrant Codes for use by recording rights owners and third party administrators to create ISRCs.
  • Provide Local Support
    We provide Registrants with guidelines on the practical implementation of the system and resolve operational problems for all users in liaison with the International ISRC Agency.
  • Encourage Proper Use of the ISRC System
    Our goal is to ensure that ISRCs are assigned to all tracks of digital recordings and that the system effectively serves the needs of recording rights owners, collecting societies, broadcasters and others.
