    Hi Spark240,

    International Sound Recording codes (ISRC) are unique identifiers that link releases to record Labels and to rights organisations. It allows royalties to be sent to the right people for a particular track. Without them it would be a complete nightmare trying to establish rights and sound recording ownership. When a radio station or streaming service for example play your track it is your tracks ISRC code that is triggered to record that royalties are owed to you and other involved. It is also used to identify when a track is used inappropriately,
