The exchange of such data between Music Licensing Companies (MLCs, ormerly known as Performers' and Producers' Collection Societies) is required to meet the requirements of bilateral agreements between the MLCs that administer the rights of independent producers and performers in several territories.
This is the standard that is relevant to communication between music licensing companies as well as for record companies to provide reperoire informaiton to MLCs.
