The Associação Fonográfica Portuguesa (AFP) is the only recording industry association in Portugal. Created in 1989, it succeeded GPPFV (Portuguese group of producers of Phonograms and videograms) and UNEVA (Union of audio and video editors).

The AFP is the Portuguese group of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI). The AFP gathers the main record publishers that operate in the Portuguese market and its affiliates represent more than 95% of the market.

Since its foundation in 1989, the AFP has released market information for many students of different degrees of education. The Top + programme, broadcast by RTP1, was a weekly chart programme done in partnership between the AFP and RTP and was the oldest one in Portuguese television.[2]
