Document Recordation: Electronic Title List Validator

Use the "Browse" button to navigate to your saved electronic titles list, then click "Validate" to run it through the Validator.

Please use the above validator tool to check your electronic title list (ETL) for formatting errors that may cause the Copyright Office to reject your recordation submission. Using the validator does not submit your ETL to the Copyright Office.


All errors must be resolved before submitting your ETL to the Copyright Office. Failure to do so may result in the rejection of your recordation submission.

Please note that the Office's validator tool does not check the substance of your ETL. Remitters are ultimately responsible for accurately completing their ETL. A successful validation reduces the risk of rejection, but does not guarantee that an ETL complies with all requirements necessary for recordation.
