Burkina Faso's 2017 EITI Report covers extractive activities in the country for that fiscal year. The document is in French.
The EITI's Open data policy was adopted in 2015 and has since been an important reference for implementing countries in their open data efforts. This has been further reinforced with the EITI Board's decision to encourage systematic disclosure.
The EITI factsheet for extractive industries is a concise two-page introduction to the EITI tailored to companies, outlining the local and international benefits of being an EITI supporting company.
On 14 February 2018, the EITI Board found that Timor-Leste addressed all corrective actions and had made satisfactory progress in implementing the 2016 EITI Standard. See decision 2018-15/BM-39/BP-39-5-H
In this second Validation the EITI International Secretariat has assessed the progress made in addressing the ten corrective actions established by the EITI Board following Timor Leste’s first Validation in 2016. See more under background below.

This is the paper containing the text for the 2016 EITI Standard for adoption by the EITI Board at the 32nd Board meeting in Lima, on 23 February 2016. See the decision by the Board.
The yearly workplans set out core activities by the International Secretariat, and are approved by the EITI Board. The work plans reflect the key priorities of the international management of the EITI for the following calendar year.
The EITI Board agreed the following recommendations:
That by end 2018, all implementing countries are expected to develop a costed work plan for 2019 and onwards that includes steps to mainstream EITI implementation in company and government systems within 3-5 years, with the scope to seek a longer transitional period where needed. This approach acknowledges that the circumstances differ in each country, that not all countries will be able to transition to systematic disclosure at the same speed,
The Board agreed in principle to the proposals made on clarifications and changes to the EITI Requirements.
