Do You Need a Universal Product Code (UPC) for My Songs?

We monitor your music through ISRCs instead.

The Universal Product Code (UPC) is a type of barcode widely used for tracking products and purchases in stores. Its most common form, the UPC-A, consists of 12 numerical digits that are uniquely assigned to each product.

UPCs are not used to locate and collect your music publishing royalties. Songtrust tracks your music via its assigned International Standard Recording Codes (ISRCs).

Below is an example of a UPC code:
