Decision on admitting Argentina as an EITI implementing country

Decision reference
2019-14 / BM-42
Decision basis
2016 EITI Standard, Requirement 1 - Oversight by the multi-stakeholder group

Board decision

The EITI admitted Argentina as an EITI candidate country on 27 February 2019. In accordance with the EITI Standard, Argentina is required to publish its first EITI Report within 18 months of becoming a candidate (i.e., 27 August 2020). Argentina is required to publish an annual progress report for 2019 by 1 July 2020. Validation will commence on date of Board decision on 27 August 2021.

The EITI approved Argentina’s request for adapted implementation in accordance with the two‐phase approach set out in the candidature application. Argentina’s first Validation will take this approach into account. As proposed, the multi-stakeholder group should document the effectiveness of this approach through the first and second EITI reporting cycles. The MSG should then agree a proposal for the subsequent reporting periods for consideration by the EITI Board.
