With a view to protect the work of its assignors (composers, authors, music publishers and sub-publishers, heirs, rights owners), AEPI is developing the organisation structure and methods of the Public Performance Department, on the basis of the social, economic and technological tendencies of the market.

The organisational restructuring includes the following:
  • A selection of specialised representatives.
  • The delimitation of the area of responsibility of every representative on the basis of population, size of area, etc., with a view to:
  • Record the spaces where musical works are performed.
  • Expand and support the staff of the legal department in Athens and the regions.
  • The decentralisation of the permission system by means of the granting of responsibilities to local representatives.
  • The expansion and reinforcement of the Audit Department by means of its division in sections corresponding to geographical departments.
  • Continuous training and information of the representatives on the new conditions and developments in the framework of domestic legislation and European Union directives, concerning intellectual property and new technological methods (for example software management) etc.
  • Control of the representatives on the faithful and consistent appliance of the pricelist and in general the implementation of the regulations that apply internationally on rights tariffs on the basis of the criteria that form the price.
  • The creation and support of the technological infrastructure for the servicing of 67 local representatives across Greece.
  • Online connections of agencies with AEPI’s central computer system for the immediate servicing of users, (the issuing of licenses, the monitoring of financial pending issues of the sources of fees etc.).

The organisational reconstruction and the strict adherence to the current legislative regulations and terms of international conventions, significantly contributes to the more effective protection of the work of the assigner of the organisation, and the constantly increasing collection of the fees for intellectual property.
