IMDG Code on the Web – Now Extended to 31 December 2020
Exis Technologies is an authorized reseller of the IMDG Code digital products. We received the following email from the International Maritime Organization on 7 May 2020.
As communicated to you through our e-newsletter since January 2020, IMO Publishing will be discontinuing the following digital products:
- IMDG Code on the Web subscription (S200E)
- Electronic IMDG Code for download (ZL200E)
- IMDG Code for Windows CD (DL200E)
These products were due to be withdrawn from sale from 1 June 2020.
However, in light of the indefinite postponement of the 102nd session of the Maritime Safety Committee, which was to have taken place at IMO Headquarters between 13-22 May 2020, and during which Amendment 40-20 to the Code was due to be discussed, IMO Publishing has taken the decision to temporarily postpone the withdrawal of the current IMDG Code on the Web online subscription (S200E), sales of which will now be extended to 31 December 2020.
Purchasers of this subscription product, which comprises Amendment 39-18 only and will not be updated, will have access to their 12-month subscription from date of purchase until its expiry or until 31 December 2021, whichever is the earliest.
Please note that this extension applies to the IMDG Code on the Web online subscription only.
The IMDG Code e-reader continues to be available and IMO Publishing is actively working on a third-party solution to resume supply of hard copies during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
