The UK’s Chart Information Network

The U.K.’s Chart Information Network is to be re-branded as the Official U.K. Charts Co., effective Oct. 1.

“It was necessary to update, upgrade, and develop the brand, particularly as the company will be more consumer-facing in the run-up to the 50th anniversary celebrations of the official U.K. singles chart in 2022,” brand manager Darren Haynes says, The London-based chart-compiling operation is owned by the British Phonographic Industry and British Assn. of Record Dealers.
