In 2019, the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation organized 4 public consultations, each on a different part of the Directive. The consultations were based on a series of papers, which contained detailed explanations and specific questions on the implementation. A total of 96 submissions were received. In April 2020, the Department also issued a Non-Paper on its draft proposal for Article 8. In May 2021, the Department announced the decision to transpose the Directive by way of secondary legislation, without further consultations and without actual parliamentary debate.

After running a series of public pre-draft consultations, each focused on a different part of the Directed and all carefully prepared, the Irish government decided to transpose the Directive by way of Regulations contained in secondary legislation, without submitting the actual draft law to public discussion and without further parliamentary debate. 


The Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation claims to have taken note of the submissions received over the course of the stakeholder consultation process and to have prepared a law that is “guided by the overarching objective of providing a copyright legislative framework fit for the digital age but which represents a balanced consideration of the interests of all stakeholders”. No text has been released yet, so it’s not yet possible to confirm these claims.
