In November 2005, the Italian NCP received a request for review from a trade union alleging that an Italian multinational enterprise had breached the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines in China.

After enquiries by the NCP it was determined that the company was not based in Italy but in China, a country whose government does not adhere to the Guidelines. The specific instance was not accepted by the NCP.
