OECD Watch launches campaign to improve effectiveness of national contact points in providing access to remedy
OECD Watch has launched a campaign to improve the effectiveness of national contact points (NCPs) of the OECD so that the NCP system can provide access to remedy for victims of business related human right violations. All governments that adhere to the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises have made a binding commitment to establish effective NCPs. We ask these governments now to honour their commitments... OECD Watch’s new campaign will be marked with nearly a dozen national level campaigns by its members aimed at getting policy-makers to take the necessary steps to ensure that their NCPs meet the obligations laid out in the Guidelines’ Procedural Guidance. The campaign also aims at getting policy-makers to acknowledge that remedy is the reason for NCPs, so that NCPs are equipped with the necessary political will to carry out determinations of a company’s non-compliance with the Guidelines and help facilitate access to remedy.
