36. Do societies, associations, or corporations that represent the perceptually disabled need certificate numbers to buy zero-rated media royalty free under the program?
No. Societies, associations, or corporations that represent the perceptually disabled are still legislatively exempt from payment of royalties on all blank audio recording media. However, to facilitate access to the exemption, exempt buyers may register with CPCC for the zero-rating program before they buy media royalty free. Most exempt buyers already have a zero-rating contract with CPCC, and do not need a new certificate number. Their existing buyer certificate numbers will remain in effect under the new program.

Exempt organizations that do not have a zero-rating certificate number are encouraged to contact CPCC directly to obtain a number: this will make royalty-free purchases easier in future.
