All countries implementing the EITI standard publish EITI Reports that disclose how much revenue governments actually receive from the extraction of natural resources. In the EITI Report, companies disclose what they have paid in taxes and royalties, and the government discloses what it has received. These two sets of figures are compiled and reconciled by an independent reconciler, chosen by the EITI multistakeholder group in each EITI implementing country. With EITI Reports, citizens can see how much their government is being paid for the natural resources in their country,
This document highlights some of the endorsements the EITI has won from countries, companies and organisations.
Since 2003 a total of 41 EITI Reports have been produced by countries implementing the EITI. Based on EITI's rules, the scope and structure of EITI Reports are determined by the national EITI Multi-Stakeholder Group (MSG) to ensure local ownership of the EITI process. As a result, EITI Reports between countries can vary in terms of the sectors covered, aggregated or disaggregated data, regularity of the reporting cycle and the reporting currencies. Timely reporting is also varied due to a lack of EITI guidance.
A growing number of international financial institutions, insurers and credit agencies recognise that they have an important role to play in contributing towards transparency and accountability in the extractives sector. The EITI Secretariat has created a document that explains the relationship between the EITI and these various financial institutions. It provides examples of how these institutions can support transparency efforts like the EITI.
