In February 2002, the Danish NCP received a request for review from a trade union alleging that a Danish multinational enterprise had breached the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines in Malaysia. At the time of notification parallel legal proceedings were underway in Malaysia

When the parallel legal proceedings in Malaysia were concluded, the company informed the NCP that they would adhere to the ruling of the Malaysan court. Accordingly, the NCP informed the parties that the specific instance was also to be considered concluded.
