Global implementation of the EITI Standard

More than 50 countries have committed to strengthening transparency and accountability of their extractive sector management by implementing the EITI Standard. 

Countries are assessed on their progress in meeting the requirements of the EITI Standard through Validation, the EITI's quality assurance mechanism. Country-level data on extractive sector production, revenue and management is available on country pages.

Country outreach

The EITI actively engages with resource-rich countries that are not yet implementing the EITI Standard but have shown interest in doing so. Our outreach activities aim to promote transparency and accountability in natural resource management in countries such as Brazil, Chile, Namibia and South Africa, among others. These initiatives are guided by the EITI's Outreach and Candidature Committee, in accordance with the EITI's outreach strategy. Through these efforts, we support countries in their journey towards improved governance and sustainable development of their natural resources.


Suspension and delisting

Implementing countries may be temporarily suspended from the EITI if they fail to meet reporting deadlines; if they make inadequate progress on EITI implementation; or if they fail to meet the EITI’s requirements on stakeholder engagement.

A country may also be suspended in cases where political instability or conflict manifestly prevents the country from adhering to a significant aspect of EITI implementation. The EITI Board may place a country under enhanced scrutiny as preliminary step before considering suspension.

Delisting involves revoking a country’s status as an EITI implementing country. Delisting will occur if a country has been subject to suspension and where the reason for suspension has not been resolved. It may also occur if a country has repeatedly failed to demonstrate progress.

The grounds for suspension and delisting are stipulated in Section 1 (“EITI Board oversight of EITI implementation”) of Part 2 of the EITI Standard.
