The tariffs are established by the Commission for Private Copying Remuneration. This is an independent administrative commission, whose members are appointed by joint order of the Ministers of Culture, Economy and Finance. They represent consumers, media manufacturers and creators, authors, artists and producers equally. This Commission votes on the rates applicable to the various media, based on studies of usage that determine the copying practices of cultural products by consumers.
