Welcome to the Electronic Confirmation Process
The Electronic Confirmation Process (ECP) is the process by means of which the participation of publishers in pay-outs by GEMA to its members is established.
You can watch the following video tutorial to find out how the EBV works:
Agreements between authors and publishers can be entered and registered electronically by the publishers with GEMA via the ECP. For this purpose, GEMA has been making electronic work lists available since 01 February 2017. In said work lists, publishers may mark such works in relation to their participation and indicate which agreement for the participation of the publisher has been made.
The ECP also applies to sub-published repertoire. In this case, electronic agreement lists are available.
The upload of electronic work and agreement lists will be possible from 01 March 2017 onwards, via the ECP.
Without a signed declaration of indemnification with an entered reference number, the uploaded lists will not be processed.
Please do not make several interim uploads, but provide us with a list which is in its final processed form, if possible.
Requirements for the ECP:
Login via the online service "Repertoire search (enhanced access)"
Members who are already using the online service "Repertoire search" (enhanced access), can access the ECP immediately after they've logged in.
