The National Syndicate of Phonographic Publishing (French: Syndicat national de l'édition phonographique; SNEP) is the inter-professional organization which protects the interests of the French record industry. SNEP was established in 1922, and has 48 member companies.

SNEP's responsibilities include collecting and distributing royalty payments for broadcast and performance, preventing copyright infringement of its members' works (including music piracy), and sales certification of silver, gold, platinum and diamond records and videos. SNEP also compiles weekly official charts of France's top-selling music, including singles and albums.

Official charts[edit]

Since September 2002, official charts are as follows:

  • Top 100 best sold singles
  • Top 150 best sold albums ("nouveautés") sold at full price,
  • Top 40 best compilations ("nouveautés") sold at full price
  • Top 40 best sold albums and compilations ("long" format) sold at mid-price or budget price

Criterion: The following guidelines are applied:

  • "Nouveauté" album means its first day of release is less than 2 years
  • Full price album means the catalogue price of album sold is €10 or higher
  • The albums whose release is more than 2 years and/or sale price lower than €10 are excluded from the "nouveauté" charts.
  • The albums sold at "mid-price" or "budget price" are classified in a separate chart and also includes long albums sold at discounted prices.
