Hungarian Recording Industry Association (Hungarian: Magyar Hanglemezkiadók Szövetsége, more commonly abbreviated to MAHASZ or Mahasz) is the Hungarian music industry association, founded in 1992. MAHASZ issues the Hungarian Music Awards, awards music recording certification and maintains the music charts for Hungary.
Since 1 January 2018, MAHASZ combined all music recording certification into one combined "album" certifications, which includes albums and singles of all genres and origins. For Gold status an album needs to sell 2,000 units and for Platinum 4,000 units, where ten singles are counted as one album. The certification also includes streaming at a rate of 1,000 paid streams or 5,000 free streams per album.
Certifications have existed in Hungary since the mid-1970s. During that period, albums had to sell 50,000 units to qualify for Gold status and singles required 100,000 units.
Over the years, Mahasz awarded certifications for albums, singled and music videos (DVDs).
For pop albums, separate thresholds were in place for domestic repertoire and international repertoire, as follows.
|Certification||Before 12 June 1992||Before 3 December 1997||Before 23 April 2002||Before 23 February 2005||Before 13 September 2006||Before 1 October 2009||Before 14 December 2012||Since 14 December 2012|
