IFPI is at the centre of a globally coordinated network of different national organisations.

We have affiliated organisations in 57 countries, including national groups that represent their own member record companies in each individual country, and music licensing companies – bodies that administer rights and collect revenues for the public performance of recorded music.

IFPI has a Secretariat currently situated in London, plus offices in Brussels, Hong Kong, Miami and a representative office in Beijing. With these specialist teams covering the regions of Europe, Latin America and Asia, in addition to our global coverage, IFPI is able to deploy our expertise in a flexible way wherever our help is needed.

It is this combination of international scale and local knowledge that creates value for our members across the world.

IFPI works on a day to day basis with our member record companies. We have a range of decision-making bodies, covering areas from legal strategy to market research, performance rights to communications.

IFPI is overseen by its Main Board, comprising the international heads of major and independent record companies, plus some of our national groups. See who sits on our Main Board.

There are also IFPI Regional Boards for Asia and for Latin America, some of whose representatives also sit on the IFPI Main Board.
