Summary

This report summarises findings from Open Ownership’s scoping study into beneficial ownership transparency in Senegal in 2022. This report examines the current state of play of beneficial ownership in Senegal. It explores the legislative framework of beneficial ownership, the system used to collect BO data, and how accessible this data is to the public. Using the Open Ownership Principles as a guide, this report provides an assessment of the measures that Senegal should take in order to introduce an economy-wide, public, beneficial ownership register. The issues and recommendations in this report will also be relevant to other EITI countries, particularly those using sectoral disclosures as a pilot for economy-wide systems.
