In December 2017, the Irish government issued a public consultation on
transposition into national law of European Union (EU) Directive 2017/1564
implementing the Marrakesh Treaty for persons with print disabilities.

Irish transposition of the Directive could serve as a model not only for
other EU member states, but also for EU candidate countries and potential
candidates.

...

In particular, EIFL welcomed the intention of the Irish government not to
introduce a compensation scheme for the making of accessible format copies,
because it would place an undue burden on institutions, such as libraries,
that make and share accessible format copies.
