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.
