2021-2024 NATIONAL ACTION PLAN
Activity of the OECD National Contact Point for Responsible Business Conduct
The Polish OECD National Contact Point for Responsible Business Conduct (OECD NCP) was established in 1998, two years after Poland’s accession to the OECD. Since 2016, OECD NCP has been operating within the structure of government administration, currently in the Ministry of Development Funds and Regional Policy (MFiPR) in the structures of the Office of the Minister.
As part of the operations of the OECD NCP in the area of respect for human rights in business activity of enterprises, the following activities are planned:
- organisation of thematic information meetings on the activities of the OECD NCP to promote responsible business standards and the complaint mechanism for reporting potential violations of the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises,
- processing of notifications of potential violations of the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises by multinational enterprises.
One of the indicators for monitoring the implementation of the NAP in 2021-2024 will be information on the number of notifications of potential violations of the OECD Guidelines related to Chapters IV and V of the OECD Guidelines as received and processed by the OECD NCP. – page 11
