Million-selling and platinum records
Since April 1973, the British Phonographic Industry has been classifying singles by the number of units shipped. The highest threshold is "Platinum record" and is currently awarded to singles that have shipped over 600,000 units.[d] From July 2014 BPI certifications (along with the Official Singles Chart) include audio streaming at 100 streams equals one unit; this does not affect sales when referring to million-sellers (hence a double platinum single may not be a million-seller).
