About the Organization

The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) is a global standard to promote the open and accountable management of oil gas and mineral resources. The EITI seeks to strengthen government and company systems, inform public debate and promote understanding.

There are at present 51 implementing countries. In each of the implementing countries, the EITI is supported by a coalition of government, companies, and civil society.

Countries who want to improve the way they manage their natural resources can apply to become an implementing country. At first they would be a candidate. In order to become compliant with the Standard, they need to meet the requirements on transparency and accountability.

The International Secretariat of the EITI supports countries in implementing the Standard and serves the EITI Board.

Its role specifically includes: outreach and advocacy, communicating and sharing lessons learned with stakeholders, providing technical advice, oversight of the Validation process and highlighting results in countries.

The secretariat has been based in Oslo, Norway since 2007
