In April 2010, the US NCP received a request for review from a trade union alleging that a US multinational enterprise had breached the disclosure, and employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines in Papua New Guinea. 

The US NCP concluded that the specific instance did not merit further consideration on the grounds that the issues raised were not amenable to resolution under the Guidelines.
