Mexico ineligible for an extension of the deadline for publishing its 2017 EITI Report and is temporarily suspended effective 13 February 2020.
Board decision in full
The Board has reviewed Mexico's request for extending the reporting deadline for publishing its 2017 EITI Report and recognises the Government and the MSG’s commitment to make progress on meeting the deadline. The EITI Board notes that Mexico submitted an extension request on 16 January 2020 asking for an extension of the deadline to 31 March 2020. The EITI Standard requires that extension requests are submitted in advance of the reporting deadline. The Board concluded that Mexico is ineligible for an extension of the deadline for publishing its 2017 EITI Report and is suspended temporarily from 13 February 2020. In accordance with the EITI Standard, the suspension will be lifted if the EITI Board is satisfied that the outstanding EITI Report is published within six months of the deadline. If the outstanding EITI report is not published by 30 June 2020, the suspension will remain in force until the EITI Board is satisfied that the country has met Requirement 4.8. If the suspension is in effect for more than one year, the EITI Board will delist Mexico.
