Reports were given on the implementation of ISBN in the represented countries and, among other items, there were sessions on the ongoing ISBN standard revision, training on recording data about publishers, and ISBN assignment issues.

We would like to extend our thanks also to all participating delegates for the part they played in this lively and informative meeting.
