IFLA Publishes Update on Current Status of Transposition of the Marrakesh Directive In Europe

From the International Federation of Library Associations:

As States which have signed the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities meet in New York, IFLA is today publishing an update on what EU governments are doing to make the Marrakesh Treaty a reality in Europe.


The European Union passed key legislation – Directive 2017/1564 and Regulation 2017/1563 – in September 2017, with a deadline for Member States to update their own laws of 11 October 2018. Ratification in Europe will mean that 28 more countries are covered by the Marrakesh Treaty, opening up access to collections in major world languages to people in other countries which have ratified.
