Equatorial Guinea is no longer a member of the EITI. The country was delisted from the EITI in 2010. It had asked for an extension of the Validation deadline. The reasons brought forward for granting an extension were not deemed sufficient, so the Board did not agree to grant Equatorial Guinea an extension.
In October 2019, Equatorial Guinea submitted a candidature application to join the EITI. The country was not admitted following an EITI Board decision in February 2020.
