Assessment of progress in implementing the 2019 EITI Standard
On 8 December 2021, the Netherlands was found to have achieved a fairly low overall score (56 points) in implementing the 2019 EITI Standard. The Validation Report outlines the full assessment of the Netherlands' Validation by requirement. It is based on extensive stakeholder consultations and a review of three templates that reflect the components of EITI Validation, namely “Outcomes and impact”, “Stakeholder engagement” and “Transparency”. The Board decision, including corrective actions needed before the Netherlands' next Validation, is published in the decisions register.
Validation is the EITI’s quality assurance mechanism to assess implementing countries on their ability to meet the provisions of the EITI Standard.
