Recording Data and Rights Notification (RDR-N)

RDR-N enables music licensing companies, record companies, performer representatives and other music licensing companies in different territories to exchange information about sound recordings, music videos, the identity of the contributors to those sound recordings and music videos and the rights claims in those sound recordings and music videos.

The most recent version of RDR-N to be published is version 1.5.

The text of the RDR-N standard can be found here.

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.
