In November 2008 the Turkish NCP received a request for review from a trade union alleging that a Dutch/UK-owned multinational enterprise had breached the general policies provisions of the Guidelines in Turkey.

The NCP undertook an initial assessment of the specific instance and during this process discovered that the issue had already been brought to the Courts. Taking these parallel proceedings into account, the NCP decided it was no appropriate to assist in this instance regarding which domestic legal proceedings were on-going.  The NCP duly concluded the specific instance.
