The British Phonographic Industry ( BPI ) administers the Platinum, Gold and Silver awards scheme for music releases in The United Kingdom. The level of the award varies depending on the format of the release (Albums, Singles or Music Videos) and the level of sales achieved. Although the awards program was for many years based on the level of shipments by record labels to retailers, since July 2013 certifications have been automatically allocated by the BPI upon the relevant sales thresholds being achieved. Member companies do, however, still have the option to certify titles based on shipment levels if they choose to.
