Registration of works

We support you when you register your works, sub-publishing agreements and audiovisual productions. To this end, and depending on the registration volume, we provide technical registration procedures, online applications and forms.

Should you receive work confirmations and agreement declarations by post, and should you wish to switch to e-mail dispatch, or alternatively, to SFTP/FTPS downloads, please send us a message to

If you don’t have a SFTP/FTPS-account yet, you can request an new account using this form.

In order to send us a work declaration, you need to be a GEMA member. You can find out here how to become a member.

Technical work registration processes

We process work declarations in the CWR format (CWR = Common Works Registration). CWR is a registration format, developed by CISAC, for original and sub-publishers with very high registration volumes. For medium-size registration volumes, we provide a web-based registration process in xml format. If any of these formats is suitable for you, please send us an e-mail to


Our central member service team answers all your questions regarding GEMA membership and admission procedures, declaration and documentation of (audiovisual) works or sub-publishing agreements, work classifications, verification of shares or protectability for usages.
