In 2002, the Korean NCP received a request for review from a trade union alleging that a Korean company had breached the employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines in Guatemala. Specifically it was alleged that inappropriate business relationships existed between the company and its counterparts.

A resolution was reached between the parties in July 2003 and the Korean NCP subsequently concluded the specific instance.
