The report is available from the EITI website and will soon be available from the EEITI website. Thus, the condition for lifting its suspension has been met.

Reference: 2018-2/BC-244

Committees may decide that non-EITI Board members may observe committee meetings and teleconferences, provided that an observer is accepted by all members of the concerned committee and that the committee finds the numbers of observers reasonable. Non-Board members who wish to observe a committee meeting or teleconference should notify the Chair of the committee and the secretariat well in advance of the Committee meeting [three days before the meeting], so as to enable obtaining the Committee’s consent ahead of the meeting.
