The Kyrgyz Republic was found to have achieved inadquate progress in implementing the EITI Standard. View more information under the Validation section of this page or go to the Board's decision in full. Previously, the country was compliant under the 2011 Rules.
The EITI process was renewed in early 2016, following an institutional set-up study completed in January 2016. A newly formed national secretariat and the Supervisory Board held its first meeting in early July 2016 and is currently working on agreeing a new Memorandum of Understanding and 2016 EITI work plan.
The national secretariat and the Supervisory Board is working with the members of the International Secretariat on Kyrgyz Republic’s Validation that commenced on 1 July 2016. The Validation Report is due to be presented to the International EITI Board by the end of 2016.
EITI implementation is coordinated by the State Agency for Geology and Mineral Resources, and is overseen by a Supervisory Board comprised of representatives from each stakeholder group (government, companies and civil society). Duishenbek Zilaliev, Director of the State Agency for Geology and Mineral Resources, is the EITI Champion and Chair of the Supervisory Board.
