APPENDIX A - Background – The Role of the National Contact Points in the Implementation of the OECD Guidelines For Multinational Enterprises

The institutions that promote and implement the Guidelines are set forth in the OECD Council Decision, a binding declaration subscribed to by all adhering countries. The Council Decision requires each adhering government to set up a National Contact Point. These play a key role of any Guidelines institution in establishing the Guidelines as an effective and vital tool for international business (see Diagram below). The National Contact is responsible for promoting the Guidelines in its national context and contributing to a better understanding of the Guidelines among the national business community and other interested parties.
