EITI Source book

The Source book is the predecessor to the EITI Rules and eventually the EITI Standard.

It is the first EITI guide to implementation.

In 2005, the EITI published the EITI Source Book to guide countries wishing to implement the EITI. The source book did not include any requirements, but rather indicated key issues that need to be addressed in order to ensure comprehensive and reliable reporting. The Source Book contains examples of oil and gas and mining reporting templates.

Most guidance has been since incorperated into the Guidance notes.
