image of Annual Report on the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises 2011

This report enhances the transparency, accountability and public visibility of the Guidelines for MNEs, one of the OECD's most successful instruments, and more particularly the major improvements brought about by the 2011 Update, and highlights the outcome of the 2011 Corporate Responsibility Roundtable, a multi-stakholder brainstorming on the launch of the work of the updated Guidelines.

The report provides a first assessment of  the outcome of the 2011 Update of the Guidelines adopted at the OECD Ministerial Meeting and a compilation of ideas for future implementation. It also reports the actions taken by the 42  adhering governments from June 2010 to June 2011.

Specific Instances Considered by National Contact Points to Date

This table provides an archive of specific instances that have been or are being considered by NCPs. The table seeks to improve the quality of information disclosed by NCPs while protecting NCPs’ flexibility – called for in the June 2000 Council Decision – in determining how they implement the Guidelines. Discrepancies between the number of specific instances described in this table and the number listed in Section IV could arise for at least two reasons. First, there may be double counting – that is, the same specific instance may be handled by more than one NCP. In such situations, the NCP with main responsibility for handling the specific instance would generally note its co-operation with other NCPs in the column NCP concerned. Second, the NCP might consider that it is not in the interests of effective implementation of the Guidelines to publish information about the specific instance (note that recommendation 4.b. states that The NCP will… make publicly available the results of these procedures unless preserving confidentiality would be in the best interests of effective implementation of the Guidelines). The texts in this table are submitted by the NCPs. Company, NGO and trade union names are mentioned when the NCP has mentioned these names in its public statements or in its submissions to the Secretariat.
