Following its recent closure, as a preventative measure against COVID-19, the IMO headquarters in London has now reopened. However, in line with WHO guidelines, the majority of IMO personnel are now working remotely until the COVID-19 emergency resolves .

For safety and security reasons, the IMO Publishing despatch service remains closed and no hard copy publications will be sent out for the foreseeable future. 

Consequently, IMO Publishing is currently offering only digital publications, including e-books, e-readers, online subscriptions and download products.

To purchase IMO publications, please contact one of our worldwide distributors.

Access to the IMO Publishing's Virtual Publications website will continue to be available throughout this period and purchases of digital titles will continue uninterrupted.

IMO has over 200 titles available in English. Many are translated into French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese and Russian.

For your convenience, the 2020 publications catalogue lists all titles issued in printed and electronic format. Book code lists with CD and DVD titles are available for easy reference, including e-readers and e-books. Please note that prices are subject to change without notice and all orders will be charged new shipping rates as from 1 September 2018. Have you already bought one of our digital titles? Please view our sample e-book or take a tour of our demo CD and take out a free two-day trial for our online subscriptions.

Caution: Do not purchase unauthorized copies of IMO publications as they may not be accurate, up to date or legally valid. Buy official conventions, codes, regulations, etc. only from IMO Publishing or from distributors of IMO publications.
