When the Bible Society in Cambodia was established in 1968, and prior to 1975, the Khmer Bible was published under Cambodian Bible Society from 1968 to 1970, and Bible Society in Khmer Republic from 1970 to 1975. Since 1975, United Bible Societies Association is the copyright holder on behalf of the British & Foreign Bible Society.
When the Bible Society resumed its ministry in Cambodia in 1993 under a new name “the Bible Society in Cambodia”, the organization is the only entity recognized as a United Bible Societies representative in the country. Bible Society’s publishing activities (production and supply, etc.) were carried out with management supports from the United Bible Societies.
