Marrakesh Treaty

The Marrakesh Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works for Persons Who Are Blind, Visually Impaired or Otherwise Print Disabled is a WIPO-based treaty adopted in June 2013. The treaty entered into force in September 2016 after twenty countries ratified the treaty. The Marrakesh Treaty provides for obligations for member states to have minimum limitations and exceptions to copyright to allow the creation and distribution of accessible format works and also to permit cross-border sharing of these formats.

The National Implementation of the Marrakesh Treaty document compiles the known implementing legislation for countries who have ratified or acceded to the treaty. This is intended to be a living document that will be updated as new countries ratify, additional implementing language is found, or improved translations are provided.
