They cover a range of issues such as labour and human rights, bribery and corruption, environment and information disclosure. Though voluntary for companies, governments that have endorsed the Guidelines are essentially conveying that they expect multinational companies to follow these principles and standards of good conduct in their operations worldwide. In 2000, as part of the most recent revision of the Guidelines, a new complaint procedure was agreed upon that allows non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to submit complaints concerning alleged breaches of the Guidelines to a government's National Contact Point (NCP)Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).
