Scope of refinements in the 2023 EITI Standard

Consultation on the scope of refinements to the EITI Standard

Closing date

Description

The 9th EITI Global Conference in mid 2023 presents an opportunity to refine the EITI Standard. Based on the experience from implementing the EITI Standard and the lessons learned from Validation, there may be opportunities to improve and clarify the EITI Requirements. Refinements of the language in the EITI Standard could reaffirm current policy and practice and help strengthen implementation. They also give the EITI Board the opportunity to address ambiguities in the text of the EITI Standard.

Critical to this process is consultations with key stakeholders on the scope of refinements to the EITI Standard. Consultations will allow the EITI Board to receive feedback from stakeholders and ensure that varying country contexts feed into the EITI Board’s deliberations. These consultation questions are intended to initiate and guide conversations with stakeholders on the scope of the refinements to the EITI Standard.

Stakeholders may choose to focus on topics that are most relevant to them and should not feel obliged to respond to every question. Stakeholders may wish to add or suggest other areas not defined in this document.

Application instructions

The survey can be filled out online (Google Forms) or downloaded (PDF & Word).

If one chooses to submit a Word or PDF document, stakeholders are asked submit their responses to Lyydia Kilpi (LKilpi@eiti.org). Respondents representing companies and institutional investors are requested to copy in constituency coordinator Stuart Brooks (sbcf@chevron.com). Respondents representing supporting countries are requested to copy in constituency coordinator Christine Detaille (Christine.Detaille@diplobel.fed.be)

Deadline for submissions: 22 April 2022

About EITI

We believe that a country’s natural resources belong to its citizens. Our mission is to promote understanding of natural resource management, strengthen public and corporate governance and accountability, and provide the data to inform policymaking and multi-stakeholder dialogue in the extractive sector. By becoming a member of the Extractives Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), countries commit to disclose information along the extractive industry value chain – from how extraction rights are awarded, to how revenues make their way through government and how they benefit the public. Through participation in the EITI, more than 50 countries have agreed to a common set of rules governing what has to be disclosed and when – the EITI Standard. In each country that has joined the EITI, a multi-stakeholder group, composed of government, companies and civil society, supports implementation of the EITI Standard.
