All governments adhering to the OECD Guidelines have established a National Contact Point (NCP).
An NCP has two main tasks:
- raising awareness of the OECD Guidelines with businesses, trade unions and non-governmental organisations; and
- contributing to the resolution of issues that arise from the alleged non-observance of the Guidelines in specific instances.
The Netherlands NCP performs these tasks by developing promotional material on the OECD Guidelines, by (co-)organising events and by answering questions from the business community, NGOs or others about the implementation of the OECD Guidelines.
