Retiring the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition – Phased Approach

As of 31 March 2022, PMI has started the phased process of retiring or “sunsetting”, the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition. Stakeholders may continue to purchase print copies through retailers and resellers, but only while supplies last. Once the stock is depleted, PMI will not reprint additional copies of the Sixth Edition.

However, we know that many professionals, especially those preparing for the CAPM exam still refer to and use the Sixth Edition in their daily work. Therefore, we are maintaining several different ways stakeholders can access the content for the foreseeable future.

  • PMI members can download a free PDF of the edition and non-members will be able to purchase it in an eBook format, both in English and other languages currently supported.
  • Stakeholders can gain digital access to the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition content via PMI standards+. PMI members can access it free, and non-members can access it via a monthly subscription.
  • The Sixth Edition will remain available through select Library Subscription Services where prior licensing agreements are in place.
