This standard was developed by the member organisations of the Digital Data Exchange, LLC (DDEX) and provides a uniform mechanism for the declaration of revenues generated from the usage of Releases and/or Resources to owners of rights in Sound Recordings or Music Videos, their administrators or agents.

Any organisation wishing to implement this (or any other DDEX standard) is required to apply for an Implementation Licence. The terms of the licence and an application form can be found here and here.
