The EITI Standard 2013

NOTE: This document has been replaced by the EITI Standard 2016, available at


The EITI Standard is the authoritative source on how countries can implement the EITI. It is the global transparency standard for improving governance of natural resources.

The Civil Society Protocol, part of the EITI Standard, was reviewed and the revised version is effective as of 1 January 2015 (see below. If the Standard is dated 1 January 2015, then the new protocol is included in it). 

The Standard was formally launched at the EITI Global Conference in Sydney 23-24 May 2013, following an extensive consultation process.

An overview of key changes from the 2011 EITI Rules which it replaces is available

For  advice on how to address specific EITI Requirements, a set of Guidance Notes may be consulted
