Notice to all RISA Members,
Sub: Introduction of ISRC First Owner Code Administration Fees
Dear RISA Member;
As many of you may be aware that in 2019 RISA created an ISRC first owner code Generating Portal system as an attempt of assisting sound recording owners effectively without any major hustles.
The portal enables Record Companies and Artists to:
Effective June 14, 2021, The Recording Industry of South Africa (RISA) will start charging a fee (R100.00 VAT exclusive) as a recovery measure of the administrative costs and maintaining of the system. It is of importance to remember that an ISRC First Owner Code it’s a once off application, therefore existing ISRC holders are encouraged to link their old codes to the ISRC portal to avoid paying for something that they already have.
ISRC is available to all owners of recordings regardless of their membership (or not) with any industry association.
All enquiries regarding this must be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
With Warm Regards
The RISA Team
