In October 2009, the US NCP received a request for review from a trade union alleging that a US multinational enterprise was breaching the general policies, disclosure, and employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines in the food production industry in South Korea.

The NCP concluded the specific instance as the parties reached agreement and withdrew their request.
