Advice from the ISBN team
If a spouse or family member passes away, can a relative or surviving spouse use their remaining ISBNs?
ISBNs are considered property of the publisher and all of their ISBNs can be transferred to a new owner, including a family member. The entire block of ISBNs is transferred to a new company owner(s). The block of ISBNs cannot be divided up among family members.
For more information, contact the Australian ISBN agency on (03) 8517-8349 during business hours or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
