The Recording Industry Association of America has decided to change their certification policy and write a new rule regarding counting digital sales.

That’s why today we are officially updating this rule in our G&P Program requirements. Going forward, sales of albums in digital format will become eligible on the release date, while sales of albums in physical format will still become eligible for certification 30 days after the release date. "
