New IMO Bookshelf service has launched on May 1st

The New IMO Bookshelf

The new IMO Bookshelf service has launched as planned on 1 May 2022. As such, from 1 May 2022 all new e-reader purchases will be provided for use with the new service.

All relevant product codes will remain the same. For example, all e-reader product codes start with a ‘K’, thus, KM200E is the e-reader product code for the 2020 edition of the IMDG Code.

If you’re curious about how IMO Publishing product codes are put together, please check the ‘Anatomy of a Product Code’ document:

Purchases of e-readers for the new IMO Bookshelf service can be made, as usual, through your account manager.

If you have previously purchased e-readers for the Windows-based IMO Bookshelf, you will also see the original READ code underneath the new login credentials. This code is for reference only and will be essential to assist with migrating the previously purchased products to the new IMO Bookshelf service, if you wish to do so.
