Applying for your Production Music licence online is very straight forward. However, the application procedure will be even easier if you remember a few simple points whilst making your production.
Please ensure that you make notes of all of the production details as you go, especially:
The Client’s details (e.g. Company name and contact details)
Any reference number(s)
The facility house used (if applicable)
It is also important to collect the information you will require to select the correct type of licence, for example:
- Type of Media (e.g. radio advert, television programme, online, etc)
- Licence Category required (all of which are listed on the MCPS Rate Card)
- Additional details (e.g. territory(s) or broadcast area, number of copies, etc)
Keeping clear and accurate records as suggested above is especially important if you are working on a number of different productions at the same time.
Aggregation of timings is not permitted under any circumstances, for example if you use a two second cue and a ten second cue these must be recorded as two separate cues. Once you have this information, you must complete the MCPS Production Music Log sheet and return it to
Once processed, you will receive your invoice and licence in the post.
