The Statutes were adopted at the IFLA Council meeting in Quebec City, Canada, 14 August 2008.

The text of these IFLA Statutes has been translated into Dutch, and the notarial deed of the amendment of the Statutes of IFLA shall be executed in the Dutch language, to comply with Dutch law. Inevitably, differences may occur in translating this text into Dutch, and if so, the Dutch text will by law prevail.

On 20 October 2008, the notarial deed has been signed and following the statutes have been registered with the Chamber of Commerce in The Hague.
