Before starting the process of drafting the implementation law, the Ministry of Justice opened a public consultation, inviting all the stakeholders to comment and express their positions on the text of the Directive. The Ministry also organized five different meetings to discuss the most problematic articles, during which every stakeholder had the chance to make its own statement. After releasing the draft law, the Ministry sent the draft and related documents to every stakeholder for comments and proposals. The Ministry also met online with civil society organizations to discuss the draft law.

As of June 7, 2021, Estonia has already submitted a draft implementation law to the Parliament and the draft already went through a first reading. The Ministry of Justice ran a complete consultation process, but the proposal submitted to the Parliament for the implementation of Article 17 does not show particular user rights concerns.

Estonia has provided stakeholders with meaningful opportunities to contribute to the implementation process. The Ministry of Justice organized a public consultation and various meetings with stakeholders to discuss the Directive, before starting the drafting process. After releasing the draft, the Ministry sent it to the stakeholders for comments and also met online with them to discuss the draft. Despite this, the proposal to implement Article 17 does not reflect particular concerns with user rights: it mostly restates the text of the Directive and does not contain any ex-ante safeguards for users rights or additional transparency provisions; it also does not narrow down the definition of platforms affected by these rules.
