The IMRF does not dispatch products ordered. Instead, we place an order with the publishers, and products are dispatched direct.



IMO Publishing

IMO Publishing

After ordering your product(s), IMO Publishing will make the e-book titles available and will let the IMRF and you know.

We will then set up an e-book account for you at the IMO Publishing website and send you the log-in details and a link. Please note that the e-books come either in PDF or EBK format.

You can just download the PDF as normal. But you need to download and read the EBK Format books through the IMO Bookshelf, an e-book reader, which you can download from the IMO Publishing website.

If you need simple instructions on how to access your e-books, please download the pdf file "Access E-Books" below.

The IMRF also sells other products, like hard cover and pocket books. They are usually stored at the Head Office in Scotland and will be posted to you as soon as the payment is through.



Completion of your order depends on:
- Payment by you through the IMRF, using the IMRF Bookshop facilities
- Availability of the products
- Product changes made by the publishers

Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items on our website may be mispriced or may no longer be available. We will verify these details when processing your order.

If a product's correct price is higher than the price shown on the website, we will contact you before we ask the publishers to complete your order. You can choose to proceed with the order, or to cancel it.

If the product’s correct price is lower than the stated price, we will charge the lower amount.
