Validation schedule

Ongoing and upcoming Validations

Through Validation, the EITI’s quality assurance mechanism, implementing countries are assessed on their ability to meet the provisions of the EITI Standard. The outcomes of Validation determine the frequency with which they are undertaken:

  • Very high. Each of the components with a score of "Very high" is re-validated after 36 months.

  • High. Each of the components with a score of "High" is validated in 12 to 36 months.

  • Moderate or Fairly low. Each of the components with a score of "Moderate" or "Fairly low" is validated in 12 to 24 months.  

  • Low. The country is temporarily suspended if any of the component scores is "Low". The suspension is lifted once the country has improved all component scores to at least "Fairly low". Each of the components with a score of "Low" is validated in 12 to 24 months.  

In establishing the commencement date for the next Validation, the EITI Board considers the nature of corrective actions and local circumstances.

Validation decisions are recorded in the Board decision register.
