The Claim Detail Message Suite Standard (CDM) provides (i) a format (the Claim Detail Message) for a response to a sales/usage report received by an owner/administrator of Musical Works which sets out the claim each owner/administrator is making in respect of the Musical Works identified in the sales/usage report and all the calculation details behind the individual and aggregate royalty claim being made by each owner/administrator in such detail that the original sender of the sales/usage report can be confident in accepting the associated invoice for payment, and, (ii) notwithstanding that point, provides two formats (the Reporting Record Discrepancies Message and the Reporting Overclaim Discrepancies Message) for the original sender of the sales/usage report to identify to the owner/administrator of the Musical Works any discrepancies that the original sender of the sales/usage report considers to exist in the Claim Detail Message.

The CDM Standard is provided in multiple parts:

  • Part 1 defines the file naming convention and the general architecture. This architecture is the same as used for the DSR Standard;
  • Part 2 defines the record types that are used to make claims or report discrepancies;
  • Part 3 defines the process and file format for making and updating claims;
  • Parts 4 and 5 define the process of reporting discrepancies, including overclaims.

Note that the allowed values for the CDM Standard are defined in Part 2 of the DSR Standard.

The allowed values for the CDM Standard are defined in Part 2 of the DSR Standard.

CDM is a "Candidate Standard", which is a formal standard approved by DDEX for which DDEX has not had any information about live implementations. Once DDEX has received such input, it is expected that CDM will be promoted to "DDEX Standard".

Before starting an implementation, DDEX recommends to read Starting an Implementation and Licensing DDEX Standards.
