The thing with Germany can't be right!
Platinum in Germany has always been 0.5 mio. until it was changed in 1999 to 300.000 for albums (singles stayed) and in 2003 to 200.000 for albums and to 300.000 for singles.

There were only in-house awards in 1974 in Germany. Official Gold and Platinum awards were released from 1975. http://www.musikindustrie.de/gold_platin_datenbank/

Am I right in thinking that if a single was released in 1965 in the US but only certified Gold in 1997 it would have to have sold 1m copies rather than 500,000?

Nope, it would have been certified under the new criteria (500,000). Had it been certified before 1989, it would have been a million. When the RIAA announced the certification changes back then, all releases certified after the post date would follow the new regimen.

I found this information in an old database. It's not surprising that some amounts were updated (downgraded). Colombia's case always surprised me considering the size of the market, so 100K instead of 300K sounds much more reasonable.
About the UK diamond, it's been discussed previously. Officially there's no such award but some count the 3M mark as "diamond".

Shakira's Diamond Prism Award for Pies Descalzos in 1997 was equivalent to 10xDiamond award (1,000,000), so i think 100k has always been Diamond level there.

What I look at the latest PDF certification levels :

Ukrainian's music recording certifications are under review

and as well

certification levels for Malaysia (albums) had been reduced to 5,000 copies for gold award and 10,000 copies for platinum award. But I do not think that we can find any certified albums in Malaysia.

Cyprus
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cypriot_Albums_Chart

The Cypriot album charts track the weekly album sales in Cyprus. They function under the supervision of the worldwide music organisation IFPI.
They were first put together in 1992 and were presented by All Records music company until December 2006. Since 2007 they are brought together by Musical Paradise.

An album has to sell at least 3,000 copies to be certified Gold, and 6,000 copies to be certified Platinum

As music sales have been declining worldwide due to the rising importance of internet in the music industry, album sales in Cyprus have been shrinking steadily since 2002.
The best-selling album of all time, according to IFPI is Anna Vissi's huge-hit album "Kravgi". The album sold more than 42,000 copies and was certified 7 times Platinum. Kravgi also holds the record of the album with the most weeks at no1: a record 32 weeks.
The first album to be certified multi-platinum was Alexia's "Ta Klassika" (The Classics, 1992).

I've got a question about the certification levels in Finland. Is multi-platinum the most you can reach there? At least that's what it seems when browsing through the [url=http://www.ifpi.fi/tilastot/kultalevyt/2013/kotimaiset/albumit[/URL]list of albums certified each year[/url]. And there's something else: Most albums on that list are released in 2013 with some others being released before. What's necessary to make this list and how often are sales updated?
Je n'ai qu'une philosophie: Être acceptée comme je suis. Malgré tout ce qu'on me dit, je reste le poing levé.
