The Implementation Committee recommends that the EITI Board adopts a revised EITI Open data policy (see Annex 1). The Board-approved EITI Open data policy is part of the EITI Standard and has been an important reference for implementing countries in their open data efforts. The revised policy reflects various developments in the open data field and the Board’s encouragement of systematic disclosure by companies and government. It also addresses stakeholder feedback and challenges encountered in implementing countries as documented in Validation.

The Board agreed that Germany has made satisfactory progress overall with implementing the 2016 EITI Standard.
