In August 2004, the US NCP received a request for a review from a consortium of NGOs regarding the activities of certain US multinational enterprises in the Democratic Republic of Congo. This request followed on from a similar request received by the NCP in 2002.
The NCP did not accept the specific instance for further consideration after concluding that the UN Panel of Experts' report had resolved all outstanding issues with respect to the US multinational enterprises involved.
