The message defined in this Part provides a mechanism for Licensees who have received Claim Detail Messages (or an equivalent message) to respond with a Claim Detail Record Discrepancy Notification should they determine that the Claim Detail Messages contain "discrepancies", i.e. issues that the recipient of the Claim Detail Messages has determined may impact the calculation of the royalties. While the resolution of such discrepancies is out of scope, Licensees are expected to use the Claim Detail Record Discrepancy Notification to signal such discrepancies to Licensors and subsequently work with those organisations to resolve them.

A Licensee that has received a Claim Detail Message (or equivalent message), including a message containing corrections, can respond to it with a Claim Detail Record Discrepancy Notification, if it detects:

Claim Detail Record Discrepancy Notifications may also be sent by triggers independent of the receipt of a Claim Detail Message (or equivalent message).
