As a member how do I register my works with IPRS?

To register tracks with IPRS, you need to share the complete metadata in the desired Data Upload format. Please visit the IPRS website https://iprs.org/already-a-member/ to download the Work Notification Bulk Upload format. Fill in your details and email them to documentation@iprsltd.com;  documentationsupport@iprsltd.com 

Below are a few guidelines that will help you in filling your work data as per the requirement of the format.

The Upload Format File contains various sheets that contain information you will require to fill in relation to your work.
  • Language of work: Options for applicable languages
  • Sub Category: Options for work grouping
  • Versions of the work: Whether Original or Modified
  • Member Details: list of IPRS members with their IPI numbers.
  • Name Type in Members Details –
PA – This is the registered name of the artist. So, the IPI Name Number which is written beside the same should be entered

PP – This is the registered name of the artist. So, the IPI Name Number which is written beside the same should be entered

PG – Meant for the collaboration. For example – Vishal-Shekhar – Here you need to mention Vishal Dadlani’s IP Name number in one column and Shekhar Ravjiani’s IP Name number in another column. Accordingly, you need to split the share i.e. 25 will be divided among the two = 12.5 each

  • IPI Number for Public Domain DP: 00039657154
  • Please note if the author, composer, or publisher is a member use code 036 which is the IPRS member code & in the case of non-member use code 099.
  • Please ensure that the member names are spelled correctly.
  • Kindly share Publisher’s YouTube link or any other Streaming site such as JioSaavn, Gaana, etc ( eg: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=858YA9sSWqg) or Scan copy of inlay card [in case the track is not present in any streaming platform] which has details of composer, author, and publisher. This is required to validate your work.
  • In the case of Publishers, it is mandatory to provide the DSP IDs of platforms where the tracks are being played
