Party Identification and Enrichment (PIE)

Party Identification and Enrichment (PIE) enables the communication of rich information about Parties. It therefore offers similar functionality to MEAD. However, whilst PIE focuses on Parties, MEAD focuses on the communication of information about the content of digital music services, such as releases, resources and musical works.

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.
