You must have either created musical works or your musical works must be active - meaning they have been broadcast or played for the public or in public spaces. It is advisable to apply for SAMRO membership as soon as the musical works are created, meaning that you do not have to wait for your musical works to be active.
A non-refundable application fee is required for first-time applicants. The fee is R100 for Composers and Authors and R500 for Publishers. Current SAMRO Members are exempt from paying the fee. To apply, submit the SAMRO Member Application form, Notification of Works form, Deed of Assignment form, and a copy of your ID.
Once all the required documents are received and correctly filled in, the process can take two weeks to a month. Feel free to check in with SAMRO after this period to confirm that your registration has been accepted.
