IMDG Code Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why can I not purchase IMDG Code for Windows after 1 June 2020?

The International Maritime Organization announced their intention at the beginning of 2020, as follows:

'Please be advised that IMO Publishing will be discontinuing the IMDG Code on the Web subscription (S200E), Electronic IMDG Code for download (ZL200E) and IMDG Code for Windows CD (DL200E) products from 1 June 2020.'

Since then IMO have decided to continue selling IMDG Code on the Web until 31 December 2020, but sales of IMDG Code for Windows (electronic and CD versions) will stop from the end of May 2020. If purchased by then, they will remain active for use until 31 December 2021.

From 1 June 2020 the alternative Amendment 39-18 products that will be available to you are:

  • IMDG Code e-reader (PC download)
  • IMDG Code on the Web
  • IMDG Code books (currently unavailable for sale due to Covid-19)
  • Hazcheck Workstation
  • Hazcheck Online
