EIFL was an active participant during negotiations over five years at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) that led to the adoption of the Marrakesh Treaty for persons with print disabilities on 27th June 2013, and its subsequent entry into force on 30th September 2016.

Now EIFL is supporting ratification of the Marrakesh Treaty and its implementation into national law.

Based on experience advocating for the Marrakesh Treaty, EIFL has compiled information on a set of issues that commonly arise concerning the process and substance of ratification and implementation. The issues cover the process of joining the treaty, budgetary implications of ratification, and the role of authorized entities.
