The BPI is the record labels’ association that promotes British music and champions the UK’s recorded music sector, including through its content protection work, international trade missions, industry events, research, and management of the Music Exports Growth Scheme.  Its membership is made up of over 400 independent record labels and the UK’s three ‘major’ companies, which collectively account for around 80 per cent of domestic music consumption and one in six artist albums sold worldwide. The BPI certifies the Platinum, Gold and Silver Awards Programme, co-owns the Official Charts, organises The BRIT Awards – which has raised more than £16.8m for music education and wellbeing charities, including the BRIT School – and is home to the Mercury Prize.
