The Professional Rules are a set of binding principles laid down by CISAC to ensure that all of our members operate according to the best practices in terms of business, governance, management, finance and technical expertise. The principle of these Professional Rules was established back in 2006 and was subsequently extended to each of our repertoires.

  • In June 2008 for societies in the music (MU) and visual arts (AGP) repertoires
  • In June 2009 for societies in the dramatic, literary and audiovisual (DLV) repertoire

Each Professional Rule was discussed within the relevant advisory body (including technical and regional committees and creators’ councils) and approved by CISAC’s General Assembly prior to their implementation.
