CHAPTER I : PROCESS OF ELABORATING THE FIRST NATIONAL ACTION PLAN ON BUSINESS AND HUMAN RIGHTS
In 2009, as part of its adherence to the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, the government established a National Contact Point (NCP) for RBCs, located in Peru’s Private Investment Promotion Agency (Proinversión). Under the OECD Guidelines, the Peruvian NCP is tasked with promoting the Guidelines and related Due Diligence Guidance and handling cases related to potential non-compliance with the Guidelines by a multinational enterprise, through a non-judicial process of mediation and conciliation between the company and the affected parties referred to as “specific instances” (OECD, 2020b, p. 22). – page 12
