Information which might help
Kenya National library has signed a contract with International Standard Music Number (ISMN) Agency in Berlin. The signing of contract mandates KNLS to act as the National Agency in issuance of ISMN numbers to local artist. KNLS now becomes the third country in Africa after Ghana and South Africa to sign contract to administer ISMN. ISMN like ISBN for books, is a number that identifies published works of music for a given country.

Others
The assignment of registrant elements and the liaison with registrants in the ISMN system is normally handled by national or regional agencies. The national or regional ISMN agencies are appointed by the International ISMN Agency on the basis of a contract, and thus become members of the system.

The functions of a national or regional agency are:

to maintain contacts with the registrants in the country or region and to introduce new registrants to the system
to handle relations with the International ISMN Agency on behalf of all the registrants in the country or region
to decide, in consultation with trade organisations and registrants, the registrant element ranges required
to allocate registrant elements to registrants eligible to join the system in their country or region and to maintain a register of these registrants and their registrant elements
to decide, in consultation with trade organisations and registrants, which registrants shall assign numbers to their own publications and which registrants shall have numbers assigned to their publications by the national or regional agency
to provide technical advice and assistance to registrants and to ensure that standards and approved procedures are observed
to make a manual of instruction for registrants available in the vernacular language(s)
to make computer printouts of ISMNs available to registrants numbering their own publications with check digits already calculated
to validate all ISMNs assigned by registrants numbering their own publications and keep a register of them
to inform registrants of any invalid or duplicate ISMN assigned by them
to assign numbers to all items from those publishers who do not assign their own ISMNs and advise these publishers of the ISMNs assigned to them
to achieve, thereby, total numbering in the country or region
to arrange, with music listing and bibliographic agencies, the publication of ISMNs with the titles to which they refer
to arrange, with registrants, the numbering of their back lists and the publication of these in appropriate trade lists and bibliographies
to assist the trade in the use of the ISMN in computer systems
to provide the International ISMN Agency regularly and free of charge with the complete data of registrant's prefixes and addresses for inclusion in an ISMN Music Publishers' Directory
to inform the International ISMN Agency regularly about its own activities and the current state of the ISMN system in the country or region
to contribute financially to the maintenance of the International ISMN Agency
