Whitelisting on YouTube means that if we have the profile in our list of whitelisted accounts, any song that you produce and/or distribute to us for it to be sold and/or streamed through Digital Service Providers will not claim that specific channel.
Also, if your profile has been whitelisted but, your videos remain claimed, we'd need to know the YouTube URL's that you want us to release claims for and this you can submit via a ticket.
The following notice from YouTube is also below:
In some cases, Content Owners have established relationships with certain uploaders and need to protect them from automated Content ID claims. Content ID whitelisting allows for this.
If you have an agreement with a content uploader ahead of time and have cleared them to use your content, you can Whitelist them so that claims will not appear on their uploads. This is particularly important for licensed content.
For example, if you are a music label and you have licensed your music to a car company’s channel that regularly uses your music in their videos, you will want to whitelist the channel to avoid claiming their content.

Will my whitelisting request be automatically approved?
No, we will review each whitelisting request and your request may be denied if we believe that whitelisting the channel will negatively impact our users.
Will it always be whitelisted?
From time to time, Symphonic will review whitelisted channels and may remove them thus, any claim currently whitelisted may show up on their channel and we encourage dialogue with the whitelisted channel to resolve differences amicably.
