Among the objectives of the International Diabetes Federation is to promote the free exchange of diabetes knowledge. In respect of this aim, the Federation seeks, where possible, to provide its publications for only the cost of handling and shipping. A handling fee of ?1 is applied to all items available in the IDF Shop that have a unit cost of 0.
Purchases in the Shop can be made only by credit card. The following cards are accepted: Visa, Mastercard, American Express.
Shipping charges for all orders are based on pre-determined weight bands supplied by the freight company contracted by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF). The charge covers packing, handling and delivery. Orders are usually responded to within 24 hours, and are normally dispatched within 7 working days. All orders will incur a delivery charge.

VAT on goods sold in the IDF Shop
VAT stands for Value-Added Tax, which is charged on goods sold within the European Union (EU). In accordance with the laws governing members of the European Union, IDF is obliged to charge VAT on all orders delivered to destinations in member countries of the EU. In general, VAT is charged in accordance with the local legislation in each member state.
All the prices of products listed in the IDF Shop are inclusive of the rate of VAT applied in Belgium. Your final price may differ depending on the actual VAT rate that applies to your order. You will be able to see your final price inclusive of applicable VAT before you confirm your order. For customers with a delivery address within the EU, VAT charges for your order will be itemised on the last page of your order, in the e-mail confirmation of your order and on the invoice dispatched with your order.
Customers outside of the EU
Products sold by IDF that are dispatched to addresses outside of the European Union are generally not subject to EU VAT. When ordering goods for delivery overseas, you may be subject to import duties and taxes that are levied once the package reaches your country. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information.
