Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (ISO

member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical

committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has

the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in

liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical

Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 3.

Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting.

Publication as an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this International Standard may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard ISO 3901 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 46, Information and

documentation, Subcommittee SC 9, Presentation, identification and description of documents.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 3901:1986), which has been technically revised.

Annex A forms a normative part of this International Standard. Annex B is for information only.

Introduction

The International Standard Recording Code (ISRC) provides a means of identifying audio recordings and music

video recordings internationally.

An ISRC identifies the recording throughout its life and is intended for use by producers of recordings as well as by

copyright organizations, broadcasting organizations, media libraries and archives, etc.

INTERNATIONAL STANDARD ISO 3901:2001(E)
Information and documentation — International Standard
Recording Code (ISRC)
1 Scope

The purpose of this International Standard is to define and promote the use of a standard code for the unique

identification of recordings.

The International Standard Recording Code (ISRC) may be applied to audio recordings and music video recordings

regardless of whether they are in analogue or digital formats. The ISRC shall not be used for the numbering of

audio or audiovisual carriers (e.g. compact discs or videocassettes).

Audiovisual recordings, other than music video recordings produced in conjunction with an audio recording, are

excluded from the scope of this International Standard. Such audiovisual recordings should be assigned an

International Standard Audiovisual Number (ISAN) in accordance with ISO 15706.
2 Normative reference

The following normative document contains provisions which, through reference in this text, constitute provisions of

this International Standard. For dated references, subsequent amendments to, or revisions of, any of these

publications do not apply. However, parties to agreements based on this International Standard are encouraged to

investigate the possibility of applying the most recent edition of the normative document indicated below. For

undated references, the latest edition of the normative document referred to applies. Members of ISO and IEC

maintain registers of currently valid International Standards.

ISO 3166-1, Codes for the representation of names of countries and their subdivisions — Part 1: Country codes

3 Terms and definitions

For the purposes of this International Standard the following terms and definitions apply.

3.1
country code

code that identifies the country in which the home office of the registrant for the recording is located at the time the

ISRC is assigned
3.2
music video recording

audiovisual fixation of which the audio component consists wholly or substantially of a recording of a performance

of a musical work or works

NOTE In most cases such an audio component is produced in conjunction with a separately issued sound recording.

3.3
recording

result of a recording process independent of the type and number of audio or audiovisual carriers and technology

used
© ISO 2001 – All rights reserved 1
---------------------- Page: 5 ----------------------
ISO 3901:2001(E)

NOTE The term recording applies to each recorded item which may be used as a separate unit regardless of whether it is

issued as part of a larger recorded work (e.g. each separate track on an album of audio recordings).

3.4
registrant

original producer or subsequent owner of the audio recording or music video recording at the time the ISRC is

assigned

NOTE If the original producer sells a recording, with all rights, before its ISRC is assigned, the acquirer is considered to be

the registrant for the purposes of ISRC from then on.
4 Structure and format of the ISRC
4.1 General

An ISRC consists of 12 characters and is alphanumeric, using the arabic numerals 0 to 9 and letters of the Roman

alphabet. It is divided into four elements in the following order:
a) country code (see 4.2);
b) registrant code (see 4.3;
c) year of reference element (see 4.4);
d) designation code (see 4.5).

When an International Standard Recording Code is written, printed or otherwise visually presented, it shall be

preceded by the letters ISRC and the four elements of the ISRC shall be separated from each other by a hyphen.

EXAMPLE
ISRC FR-Z03-97-00212
Code identifier: ISRC
Country code: FR (i.e. France)
Registrant code: Z03 (i.e. Mercury France)
Year of reference: 97 (i.e. 1997)

Designation code: 00212 (i.e. 212th recording assigned an ISRC by Mercury France in 1997)

4.2 Country code

The country code identifies the country in which the registrant's home office is located at the time the ISRC is

assigned.

The country code shall consist of two letters and shall be in accordance with the codes specified in ISO 3166-1.

EXAMPLES
GB � United Kingdom
DE � Germany
SE � Sweden

---------------------- Page: 6 ----------------------
ISO 3901:2001(E)
4.3 Registrant code

The registrant code identifies the producer (or subsequent owner) of the recording at the time the ISRC was

allocated.

Since ISRCs are normally assigned at the point at which the full mastering process is finalized (see A.1.2), the

registrant code usually reflects the original producer of the audio recording or music video recording. However, if

the original producer sells a recording, with all rights, before its ISRC is assigned, the subsequent owner would be

the registrant for the purposes of the ISRC.

The registrant code shall consist of three alphanumeric characters (A to Z and 0 to 9).

EXAMPLES
A83 � BMG (Han Kook) Music Co. Ltd.
8G5 � 77 Productions
28R � Inca Productions
191 � Sony Music Entertainment AG
WP0 � Warner Music Japan Inc.
RIP � Riptide Productions

Producers shall use the registrant codes assigned to them by the appointed ISRC agency for their country or region

(see annex A).
4.4 Year of reference element

The year of reference element identifies the year in which the ISRC is allocated to the recording (see A.1.2).

The year of reference element shall consist of two characters representing the last two digits of the year in which

the ISRC was allocated. It shall be assigned by the registrant.
EXAMPLES:
98 � 1998
01 � 2001

Avant-propos

L'ISO (Organisation internationale de normalisation) est une fédération mondiale d'organismes nationaux de

normalisation (comités membres de l'ISO). L'élaboration des Normes internationales est en général confiéeaux

comités techniques de l'ISO. Chaque comité membre intéressé par une étude aledroit de fairepartie ducomité

technique créé à cet effet. Les organisations internationales, gouvernementales et non gouvernementales, en

liaison avec l'ISO participent également aux travaux. L'ISO collabore étroitement avec la Commission

électrotechnique internationale (CEI) en ce qui concerne la normalisation électrotechnique.

Les Normes internationales sont rédigées conformément aux règles données dans les Directives ISO/CEI, Partie 3.

Les projets de Normes internationales adoptés par les comités techniques sont soumis aux comités membres pour

vote. Leur publication comme Normes internationales requiert l'approbation de 75 % au moins des comités

membres votants.

L’attention est appelée sur le fait que certains des éléments delaprésente Norme internationale peuvent faire

l’objet de droits de propriété intellectuelle ou de droits analogues. L’ISO ne saurait être tenue pour responsable de

ne pas avoir identifié de tels droits de propriété et averti de leur existence.

La Norme internationale ISO 3901 a étéélaborée par le comité technique ISO/TC 46, Information et

documentation, sous-comité SC 9, Présentation, identification et description des documents.

Cette deuxième édition annule et remplace la première édition (ISO 3901:1986), qui a fait l'objet d'une révision

1 Domaine d'application

L’objet delaprésente Norme internationale est de définir et de promouvoir l’utilisation d’un code normalisé pour

l’identification univoque des enregistrements.

Le Code international normalisé des enregistrements (IRSC) peut s’appliquer aux phonogrammes et

vidéomusiques quel qu’en soit le codage, analogique ou numérique. L’ISRC ne doit pas être utilisé comme numéro

d’identification des supports sonores ou audiovisuels (par exemple disques optiques ou vidéocassettes).

Les vidéogrammes, autres que ceux qui sont produits conjointement avec un enregistrement sonore, sont exclus

du domaine d’application de la présente Norme internationale. À ces vidéogrammes peut être attribué un numéro

international normalisé d’œuvre audiovisuelle (ISAN), conformément à l’ISO 15706.

2Référence normative

Le document normatif suivant contient des dispositions qui, par suite de la référence qui y est faite, constituent des

dispositions valables pour la présente Norme internationale. Pour les références datées, les amendements

ultérieurs ou les révisions de cette publication ne s’appliquent pas. Toutefois, les parties prenantes aux accords

fondés sur la présente Norme internationale sont invitées à rechercher la possibilité d'appliquer les éditions les plus

récentes du document normatif indiqué ci-après. Pour les références non datées, la dernière édition du document

normatif en référence s’applique. Les membres de l'ISO et de la CEI possèdent le registre des Normes

internationales en vigueur.

3 Termes et définitions

Pour les besoins de la présente Norme internationale, les termes et définitions suivants s’appliquent.

3.1
code de pays

code qui identifie le pays où se situe le siège social du déclarant de l'enregistrement au moment de l’attribution de

l’ISRC
(Terme anglais: country code)
3.2
vidéomusique

fixation audiovisuelle dont la partie sonore consiste dans l’enregistrement complet ou substantiel de l’interprétation

d’uneouplusieurs œuvres musicales

NOTE Dans la plupart des cas, la présente partie sonore est aussi disponible sur un phonogramme réalisé séparément.

(Terme anglais: music video recording)

ISO 3901:2001(F)
3.3
enregistrement

résultat d’une procédure d’enregistrement indépendante du type et du nombre des supports sonores ou

audiovisuels et de la technologie employée

NOTE Le terme enregistrement s’applique à chaque unité enregistrée susceptible d’être utiliséeséparément même si elle

fait partie d’un enregistrement plus important (par exemple chaque plage d’un album d’enregistrements sonores).

(Terme anglais: recording)
3.4
déclarant

producteur initial de l’enregistrement ou acquéreur suivant du phonogramme ou de la vidéomusique au moment de

l’attributiondel’ISRC

NOTE Si le producteur initial vend l’enregistrement avec tous ses droits attachés, avant l’attribution de l’ISRC, l’acquéreur

est dèslorsconsidéré comme le déclarant pour l’ISRC.
(Terme anglais: registrant)
4 Forme et structure de l’ISRC
4.1 Généralités

Un ISRC comporte 12 caractères alphanumériques, chiffres arabes de 0 à 9 et lettres de l’alphabet latin. Il est

composé de quatre éléments dans l’ordre suivant:
a) code de pays (voir 4.2);
b) code du déclarant (voir 4.3);
c) annéederéférence (voir 4.4);
d) code article (voir 4.5).

Un Code international normalisé des enregistrements, dans sa forme écrite ou impriméeetpour toute

représentation visuelle, doit être précédé par les lettres ISRC et les quatre éléments de l’ISRC doivent être séparés

les uns des autres par un tiret.

ISO 3901:2001(F)
4.2 Code de pays

Le code de pays identifie le pays où se trouve le siège social du déclarant au moment de l’attribution de l’ISRC.

Le code de pays doit comporter deux lettres et doit être conforme à l’ISO 3166-1.

EXEMPLES
GB � Royaume-Uni
DE � Allemagne
SE � Suède
4.3 Code du déclarant

Le code du déclarant identifie le producteur (ou l’acquéreur suivant) de l’enregistrement au moment de l’attribution

de l’ISRC.

Puisque les ISRC sont généralement attribués au moment où toutes les opérations de mises en forme de

l’enregistrement sont terminées (voir A.1.2), le code du déclarant reflète habituellement le producteur initial du

phonogramme ou de la vidéomusique. Pourtant, si le producteur initial vend un enregistrement avec tous ses

droits, avant l’attribution de l’ISRC, l’ayant droit suivant sera le déclarant dans le cadre de l’ISRC.

Le code du déclarant doit consister en trois caractères alphanumériques (de A àZet de 0 à 9).

EXEMPLES

8G5 � 77 Productions
28R � Inca Productions
191 � Sony Music Entertainment AG
WP0 � Warner Music Japan Inc.
