Description

Eligibility for membership is set out here in the SCAPR statutes.  Our statutes are also available under the Search option of this website.

Membership in SCAPR

Members may choose to only belong to SCAPR. This gives the member direct access to the SCAPR Secretariat providing support, model agreements and input into SCAPR’s legal, rights administration and co-operation and development working groups. There are two levels of membership within SCAPR itself, Associate and Ordinary. Associate membership is a limited form of membership allowing members to participate on a non-voting basis, and is designed for CMOs in their early stages of development. A CMO can only remain as an Associate member for a maximum of five years, during which time they should have progressed to meet the minimum standards required in the SCAPR statutes to obtain Ordinary membership . As an Ordinary member, CMOs have full voting rights. Members of SCAPR do not have access to either of SCAPR’s databases unless, in addition to their SCAPR membership, they become a member of that database (IPD and/or VRDB).

Membership in IPD

CMOs can join IPD (International Performers Database) either separately through a partnership agreement with SCAPR or as a SCAPR member. Details of the IPD and the requirements to be eligible to join can be found below. Membership with IPD entitles the CMO to participate in the SCAPR Technical Working Group.

Membership in VRDB

CMOs can join VRDB (Virtual Recording Data Base) either separately or through a partnership agreement with SCAPR or as a SCAPR member.  Details of the VRDB and the requirements to be eligible to join can be found below. Membership of VRDB entitles the CMO to participate in the SCAPR Technical Working Group.

How to Join?

Collective Management Organizations (CMOs) may apply for membership if they fulfill the following requirements:

  • Is a representative within the national territory for the performers' statutory rights they administer,
  • Directly or indirectly license performers’ rights and/or collect remuneration for performers,
  • Distribute payments individually to the right owners – both to nationals and foreigners,
  • Have established a database with pertinent recording data and information on the remuneration they administer in relation to both national and foreign right owners by use of a recognised unique international performers´ identification number.

The application for membership shall be sent to the Board via the SCAPR Secretariat together with a copy of the statutes and regulations of the organisation including i.e. the distribution rules, the applicable tariffs, a list of signed reciprocal agreements, the report of activity for the previous year and the annual financial statements of the organization.  Please note that these documents must be provided in English.

The acceptance of new Ordinary members is decided by the General Assembly by a two thirds majority vote upon proposal of the Board. CMOs which do not fulfil the above conditions for Ordinary membership can apply for Associated membership.

As noted above, Associated members shall fulfill the conditions for becoming an Ordinary member within the maximum period of 5 years.

The Board may admit CMOs as Associated members until membership is decided by the Council at the next annual General Assembly.
