Advancing and Strengthening the OECD National Contact Point Peer Review Process – Interim Findings and Recommendations

Accountability Counsel, the International Corporate Accountability Roundtable (“ICAR”), and OECD Watch are conducting research to evaluate the National Contact Point (“NCP”) peer review process and identify opportunities for improvement, with the ultimate aim of ensuring that NCPs are functionally equivalent and provide effective access to remedy. 

The document outlines the preliminary results of our research and is intended to inform discussions on the topic at the 2017 United Nations Forum on Business and Human Rights. These interim findings and recommendations are based on a desk review, as well as nineteen interviews with NCPs (both those under review and those that have acted as reviewers), the OECD secretariat, and stakeholders who participated in the Belgian, Danish, Italian, and Swiss NCP peer reviews.
