2023 EITI Standard: Summary of changes
The amended EITI Standard includes several new and refined provisions that enable countries to respond to the most pressing challenges that concern natural resource governance. It strengthens EITI disclosures and governance requirements to improve understanding of the impact of the energy transition, address corruption risks, promote gender equity and strengthen revenue collection.
The EITI is a non-profit association organised under Norwegian law. The EITI Articles of Association govern the EITI Association. They were updated at the EITI Members’ Meeting on 12-13 June 2023.
The report of the International Advisory Group, as adopted by the Oslo Conference in October 2006, recommended that “Each of the constituencies should agree how they wish to be represented on the proposed Board. This requires prior consideration by each constituency of how they define those eligible (i) to be selected as representatives; and (ii) to be involved in the selection process”.
The constituencies are defined in the EITI Articles of Association, which also determine the size of the constituencies’ membership in the EITI Association and the number of seats on the EITI Board. Some of the EITI constituencies are informally sub-divided.
