The online version of the ICZN Code has now been updated to include the two amendments to its content passed since the 4th Edition was published in 1999 (Declaration 44 and the recent amendment on electronic publication).

The changes are indicated in red, with the old text marked [amended] and presented as crossed-out text, and the new, amendment text shown in normal font, under the heading [amendment].

For example, Article 8.1.3 is changed as follows;
8.1.2. it must be obtainable, when first issued, free of charge or by purchase, and
        [amended]
8.1.3. it must have been produced in an edition containing simultaneously obtainable copies by a method that assures numerous identical and durable copies.

        [amendment]
        8.1.3. it must have been produced in an edition containing simultaneously obtainable copies by a method that assures
            8.1.3.1. numerous identical and durable copies (see Article 8.4), or
            8.1.3.2. widely accessible electronic copies with fixed content and layout.

Many thanks to Mike Sadka, NHM London, who has maintained the online Code since it was developed with a grant from the John Spedan Lewis Trust. Gary Rosenberg and Neal Evenhuis advised on the format of the update.
