How Long Does it Take for PRO Application to Process?

The timeline depends on the PRO itself.

Songtrust can affiliate you with ASCAP, BMI, or IMRO. It may take as long as several weeks for this Performing Rights Organization (PRO) to create your IPI number. Once it’s established and you are fully affiliated, we automatically grab that number and move your account to the next step, which is delivering your songwriter and song information to our global collections partners.

If you are affiliating with a different PRO in your home territory, we suggest asking them how long the process takes directly.
