UK NCP initial assessment: complaint by an NGO against 6 UK-based telecommunication companies

Initial assessment statement from the UK National Contact Point (NCP) on a complaint against 6 telecommunication companies.

Detail

This publication reports the assessment of a complaint by a UK non-government organisation (NGO) against 6 companies in the telecommunications industry in the UK.

The complaint alleged that the companies’ actions did not meet voluntary standards on human rights included in the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. These Guidelines have an associated complaints process in which the first stage is for the National Contact Point (NCP) of the country concerned to decide whether a complaint should be taken further.

The UK NCP has rejected this complaint at this first stage.
