IFPI Island

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

IFPI Island is an offshoot of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry in Iceland and represents the music industry there . The organization controls the sales figures of the phonograms sold in the country, awards music awards and reviews music licenses.

Limits to the award of phonograms

Until 1992, the gold record was awarded in Iceland for 3,000 units sold, the platinum record for 7,500 units. Due to increasing sales, the barriers were raised to 5,000 units sold for gold and 10,000 units for platinum. As of 2012, these hurdles apply in Iceland to both the national and the international repertoire. The same numbers apply to video album sales.
