Self-assembly and Self-dismantling

Registrations to category "01. Bicycles" and "04. E-bikes + Pedelecs" will be seen as "self-assembly" and "self-dismantling" entries. Registrants are responsible for delivering the entry to the jury venue at the designated time and picking up the entry after jury. Overseas entrants who find it difficult to come for self-assembly and self-dismantling, please send an email to before the registration deadline to discuss possible solutions.

Transport, Liability & Insurance

Original products must be shipped, free of charge for iF, via mail, courier or forwarding company to our logistics partner Kuehne+Nagel Taiwan. Please ensure that product deliveries are handled in accordance with the customs requirements for the free trade of goods (Delivered Duty Paid). Shipments from overseas (outside Taiwan) are recommended to use freight forwarding companies with customs clearance services. We recommend that you apply for an ATA Carnet for your shipment to save import duties and taxes. If you opt for courier services, please notify your courier that the sender is responsible for the duties and taxes. Please also note that couriers may not be able to deal with customs clearance if a shipment is stuck at the customs. In which case, iF will authorize our logistics partner Kuehne+Nagel Taiwan to assist with customs clearance with a cost of US$ 90 (plus 5% VAT) per shipment. The handling fee does not include duties and taxes based on CIF value and will be charged and invoiced by iF.

Products must be delivered in reusable packaging. The contestant is liable for any damages or additional charges. The organizer does not undertake to insure the delivered products. We recommend that participants take out a transport and exhibition insurance policy, particularly to cover breakage, damage and theft.
