Priority should be given to all measures that can reasonably be taken to avoid the loss overboard of packages containing dangerous goods and harmful substances. However, the possibility of such loss can never be totally excluded. Search and Recovery of Packaged Goods Lost at Sea describes the fate of such packages and related options for response, and gives guidelines on how to decide whether the packages should be recovered.
Problems related to oil pollution casualties and related information are specifically addressed in the IMO Manual on Oil Pollution, Sections I to VI.
Expert advice on response to lost packages containing IMDG Code Class 7 (Radioactive material) should be obtained from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and reference made to the IAEA planning and preparing for emergency response to transport accidents involving Radioactive Materials Safety Guide TS-G-1.2.

An E-Reader (EBK file) can only be read through the IMO Bookshelf Software.
One licence (read: 1 E-Reader) gives you 2 "copies" to download on different devices if you wish, or use the second "copy" as a spare in case something happens to your computer.
Since December 2019 the IMO Bookshelf Software now allows you to uninstall your e-reader from your computer and install it on another computer (don't forget to reinstall the IMO Bookshelf software on the other computer as well, of course). This gives you more freedom and there is less chance you have to use your second copy, and could even been given to a colleague.
Important: You must uninstall the license from the old computer before attempting to reinstall it on another computer!
NB: You may print 10% of the text (approx. a chapter) at a time from a single title with a maximum of 75 pages per day across all titles.
