Correction needed[edit]

"Since 1 July 1998, CIN and then OCC have compiled the official charts. Prior to this date, the charts were produced by a succession of market research companies, beginning with the British Market Research Bureau in 1969, and later by Gallup and Millward Brown."


That is incorrect - Millward Brown still collect and compile the data on behalf of OCC. The link to the OCC information pack in the article itself says this! CIN was just the previous name for the OCC. http://www.theofficialcharts.com/docs/Information_Pack_June_2004.pdf —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 83.216.71.245 (talk) 21:24, 28 March 2007 (UTC).

Seconded... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 204.52.187.4 (talkcontribs) 15:13, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

CIN (the original name for OCC) was formed in 1990. It owned the copyright for the charts - but Gallup compiled them. CIN/OCC took over as chart compilers in February 1994. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UK_Singles_Chart#Electronic-age_charts

The Official Charts CompanyOfficial Charts Company – The definite article is not part of this organization's name in common usage or officially. On their web site they write "the Official Charts Company", not "The Official Charts Company". Their logo also omits the article. Per WP:THE, the definite article should only be included in the article title if it's habitually capitalized in running text. Jafeluv (talk) 20:33, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
