Nielsen Book has four key brands: Registration Agencies,
BookData, BookNet and BookScan.
The Nielsen Book Registration Agencies provide a range of
standard identifiers to English-language publishers for use in the
international supply chain.
The ISBN Agency issues publisher prefixes and ISBNs to
publishers based in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. The SAN
Agency is administered on behalf of BIC and assigns Standard
Address Numbers and Global Location Numbers to organisations in any
country except USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The ISTC
Agency assigns International Standard Text Codes to authors,
publishers and other authorised representatives who wish to
register textual works. The agencies also provide advice and
guidance on making the most of these identifiers.
