United States
EITI Candidate


PWYP USA was launched in 2004 and has campaigned mainly on mandatory disclosures. These efforts culminated in the passage of the Cardin-Lugar provision in the Dodd-Frank Act of July 2010, which obliges all US listed companies to publish what they pay in the countries in which they operate. However, the law has yet to come into effect so PWYP USA is focussing its efforts on ensuring a swift and effecting implementation of the rule.

PWYP USA also played a role in the advocacy push for the US to join EITI.
