ISRC stands for International Standard Recording Code.
ISRC is used to identify sound recordings and music video recordings so that each such recording can be referred to uniquely and unambiguously.
An ISRC identifies a recording throughout its entire life and is assigned by the rights owner of the recording or an authorized representative.
Once assigned, the ISRC is used by (among others) the producer of the recording, as well as by parties who may subsequently license or acquire the recording, contributors to the recording, users, and licensees of it, organizations representing the owners of different collectively managed rights in the recording (CMOS), broadcasting organizations, media libraries and archives, musicologists, teachers, and application software developers.
Owners of both audio and audio-visual recordings must have ISRC for their works. For more information on ISRC, Click here
