  1. Hi Henk,

    You need to contact your national agency. If the Netherlands does not have one, you need to contact the International Agency in London (https://www.isbn-international.org/). It says on their website:

    “Contact the International ISBN Agency for advice. It may be that we have already made informal arrangements with an existing national ISBN Agency to provide ISBNs on behalf of your country. We also recommend that you contact the ministry of culture and associations responsible in your country for publishers or the book trade to inform them of the desire for the implementation of the ISBN system in your country.”

  2. I am based in the Netherlands. I want to publish books in English, Spanish and Dutch. How do I get a block of adequate ISBNs?
