Board Paper 45-4-A
Assessment of Ukraine's multi-stakeholder group’s request for adapted implementation with respect to the coverage of the extractive industries in the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts of Ukraine and Crimea for the reporting period 2018-2019.
The application was made because the GOvernment of Ukraine is not able to compel companies and local government agencies in tehse areas to participants in the EITI process. The government and the multi-stakeholder group have committed to ongoing efforts to ensure that EITI reporting is as comprehensive as possible.

The EITI Board agreed the EITI Policy on voicing concerns at its meeting in Addis Ababa on 17 October 2019 (Board paper 45-6-A).
EITI Policy on voicing concerns
The procedures for voicing concerns to the EITI are open to all stakeholders and accessible. Stakeholders with a concern should first raise it to the attention of the immediate EITI body (national multi-stakeholder group, EITI constituency, etc.). If this is not appropriate or if the concern remains,
The 2020-2022 Outreach Strategy (Board Paper 45-7-A) was approved in Addis Ababa. See the file attached below.
The EITI and its partners agree that there are opportunities to reach out to other resource-rich countries that could benefit from EITI implementation and could contribute to improved global governance of natural resources and their contribution to development goals. This document provides a strategy for how the EITI, together with supporting governments, companies and organisations, commits to work towards wider implementation of the EITI.
The Validation procedure relates to how Validation is carried out.
These procedures came into force on 31 December 2016 and apply to all Validations commencing on 1 January 2017 and thereafter. The procedures were updated in October 2019.
For guidance and information on second Validations, see the chapter of the guide to the Standard on Validation, in particular the guidance note on preparing for Validation, where section 2.2 deals with second Validations.
This discussion paper, authored by Alexandra Gillies, was commissioned to inform ongoing debate about the role that the EITI plays in addressing corruption.
Corruption remains a significant and harmful problem in the extractives sector. By raising the bar on transparency, the EITI has undoubtedly played a substantive role in addressing corruption, but the nature of this role has not always been well understood or articulated.
This document proposes the objectives of the strategy, as well as the criteria and strategic approaches that the EITI should use to guide its outreach priorities. In light of these, it proposes outreach priorities for the EITI – including a ramping up of our engagement with state-owned enterprises, financial institutions and southern-based multi-national corporations – and the corresponding resource implications. Finally, it includes a brief background section for the benefit of new Board members, outlining the EITI’s outreach efforts to date and other considerations.
