On 14 February 2020, Vila Solaris Hospedagens e Eventos , represented by Mr. Rogério Mário Ziviani Gomes, the owner of the aforementioned inn, submitted a specific instance to the Brazilian NCP, alleging that Vale S.A., a mining and quarrying MNE had not observed the General Policies (Chapter II), Disclosure (Chapter III), Human Rights (Chapter IV) and Environment (Chapter VI) provisions of the OECD Guidelines. The submitter is a managing partner of Vila Solaris Hospedagens e Eventos, a hospitality enterprise located in the district of São Sebastião das Águas Claras (known as "Macacos"), in Nova Lima, Minas Gerais. The issues raised relate to risks posed to the activities of Vila Solaris being unviable because of its proximity to a tailings dam owned by Vale S.A..

On 13 April 2020, the NCP accepted the case for further examination after initial assessment.

On 21 April 2020, the submitter requested the suspension of the procedure due to direct negotiations being carried out with the company. The NCP granted the suspension request.

On 27 November 2020, the submitter’s representatives reported that they had reached an agreement with the company in a parallel procedure, and requested the conclusion of the case within the NCP.

The NCP concluded the case and published the final statement on 11 May 2021, considering the case to be concluded with agreement outside of the NCP process.
