Summary

In May 2014, the Chilean NCP received a request for review from a family business alleging that an electrical company had breached the environment provisions of the Guidelines in the expropriation proceeding for the construction of high voltage electrical towers on its terrain, in Chile.

The NCP undertook an initial assessment of the specific instance by focusing on whether the questions raised by the family business merited an in-depth examination. To help this assessment, the NCP requested inputs on the matter raised from one of its focal points in the Chilean Ministry of Environment. After reviewing and studying the information submitted by the family business as well as that provided by the multinational enterprise responsible for the construction of the antennas and overhead power lines, the Chilean NCP has concluded that the issues raised do not merit further examination.
