In March 2003 the French NCP received a request for review from a trade union alleging that a multinational enterprise had breached the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines in the extractive sector in France.

The NCP evaluated the request and concluded that it did not merit further consideration as it didn't touch directly on the OECD Guidelines. The NCP also decided that it was not appropriate to interfere with the parallel proceedings pending before the French Labour Court (Prud'hommes).
