National Contact Points

Adhering governments are obliged to set up National Contact Points (NCPs) whose main role is to further the effectiveness of the Guidelines by undertaking promotional activities, handling enquiries, and contributing to the resolution of issues that arise from the alleged non-observance of the guidelines in specific instances. All 34 OECD countries, and 12 non-OECD countries have subscribed to the Declaration. Information about individual NCPs can be accessed via the links below. The European Union supports the guidelines as an observer.
