List of Authorised Entities in Australia
Below is a list of organisations and their representatives in the print disability and educational sector that, under the Marrakesh Treaty, would be considered “authorised entities” . An “authorised entity” means “an entity authorized or recognized by the government to provide education, instructional training, adaptive reading, or information access to beneficiary persons on a non-profit basis.” The aim of this list is to provide publishers with a list of trusted organisations that, under the law, are qualified to ask publishers for book files if no accessible format version is commercially available.
