Case database

OECD Watch’s online case database contains information on OECD Guidelines cases raised by civil society organisations at National Contact Points. The database contains relevant information about the cases, including the complaint, supporting documents, letters and statements. Some of the information and documentation in the database is sensitive and/or confidential and has been given to OECD Watch in confidence that it will not be distributed further.  OECD Watch strives to ensure that the information in this database is reliable, but ultimately OECD Watch is not responsible for the content. OECD Watch is willing to correct or remove any information that is factually inaccurate. For questions about which documents contain sensitive information, please contact the individuals directly involved in the case.


This database has been built by SOMO with the support of Red Puentes, Milieudefensie (Friends of the Earth Netherlands) and the Northern Alliance for Sustainability (ANPED). The database is maintained and updated by SOMO, with financial support from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
