The Transitory Registration Agency (TRA) is the Registration Agency managed by ISAN International Agency (ISAN-IA) based in Geneva - Switzerland with the mission of allocating ISAN for works and versions to all audiovisual content whose Registrants are located in a country not covered yet by a local Registration Agency (RA).
As soon as a Local Registration Agency is appointed in such a country, the Registrant’s account and all the ISAN allocated by that Registrant will be transferred to the new Registration Agency.
If you wish to apply to become an ISAN Registrant and you are not located in a country with an appointed ISAN Registration Agency , you need to download, accept and sign the TRA Terms & Conditions by following this procedure:
Download, accept and sign the Registrant Form, Terms & Conditions and Pricing, and return it by email to email@example.com or by fax to +41 22 545 10 40.
A 200 CHF one-off pre-payment is charged for account registration prior to any ISAN activation. Payment will be possible by credit card or by bank transfer. Then, an ISAN account will be created for your company.
The TRA Customer Service will process your application upon reception within office opening hours (9:00 am – 6:00 pm Switzerland local time)
You will receive your personal login to access the web based ISAN registration platform well as a Quick Start Guide to help you with your first registrations.
As soon as you get your login you can start registering your works.
Step 3: Log into the ISAN registration web interface, submit the descriptive information related to the audiovisual works (title, year of reference, director, participants, …) or the versions for which you need an ISAN or V-ISAN.
