CIP Program Requirements

Publishers participating in the CIP program are obligated:

  • To transmit to LC the complete text (including the prescribed codes) or, at minimum, core required materials of each title for which CIP data is requested.

  • To print the complete and unaltered CIP data in the book.

  • To send a complimentary copy of the book to the CIP Division immediately upon publication.

Failure to comply with any of these program requirements may result in the suspension or removal of your ECIP account.
