In June 2005 the Belgian NCP received a request for review by the International Textile, Garment and Leather Worker's Federation alleging that GP Garments had breached the Guidelines provisions concerning transparency and employment relations in Sri Lanka.
Despite the appointment of an external mediator accepted by all parties concerned, it was not possible to reach a mediated solution. The NCP issued a public statement (in French), urgently calling on the enterprise to respect the relevant recommendations found in chapters 3 and 4 of the Guidelines.
