Claim Detail Message Suite (CDM)

The Claim Detail Message Suite (CDM) enables the exchange of information between rights owners or licensors of musical works and digital music service providers (DSPs), about claims in those musical works and invoice calculations relating to those claims. CDM also enables DSPs to identify any discrepancies identified in that claim information to the rights owners or licensors.

The current CDM is in version 1.0 and it is a Candidate Standard.

Remember, at least before going live with an implementation, you will need to take out a DDEX Implementation Licence. Information about the Implementation Licence can be found here and the application form is available here.
