In November 2007, the NCP received a request for review from Argentinian congressman Héctor Recalde alleging that ACCOR, a French multinational, was breaching the general policies, employment and industrial relations, and combating bribery provisions of the Guidelines.

At the commencement of the specific instance a parallel judicial process regarding the conduct of an official linked to the French multinational enterprise was underway. However this did not hinder the development or the resolution of the specific instance. The specific instance was concluded to the satisfaction of all parties involved and communicated publicly via a paid announcement published in two newspapers with nation-wide circulation.
