How To Find My IPI on BMI/ASCAP [2 Options]

The IPI (Interested Party Information) number uniquely identifies songwriters und publishers as international rights holders.

The number is nine to 11 digits long.

It is assigned to songwriters und publishers by their Performing Rights Organization (PRO). This is why you won’t find it Distrokid or CD Baby.


How do you find your own IPI on BMI or ASCAP?

You can find your Interested Party Information number in two ways from your PRO (BMI / ASCAP):

1. by contacting your PRO
2. by performing a search in the public repertory on both ASCAP and BMI (described below)

Important note: This number is not the same as the member account number!

If you want to find your own IPI on BMI or ASCAP via the last option, this is how you do it:
