NCP during the Corona-crisis
As many other people, the NCP members and the members of the NCP-secretariat are working from home at the moment. Although we try to continue the NCP work as best as we can, we kindly request your attention for the following:
New notifications can be submitted as usual as described on our website. We regret to inform you though, that for the moment it is not possible to arrange face-to-face meetings and/or mediation talks with both parties present.
For each notification the NCP will assess if and how communication can be continued in a good and safe way. The assessment will include not only the technical possibilities but also the situation of the parties at the site of the notification and the influence of the Corona-crisis on the notification topics. The NCP will communicate the findings of the assessment with the parties involved and inform them in case the assessment leads to adjustment of the NCP procedures.
Due to the Corona-crisis the NCP’s reactions and response times may be longer than usual. If so, parties will be informed. We kindly request your understanding in this regard. Be assured that we will do our utmost to prevent any delay.
Finally, we would like to inform you that for the moment information sessions and presentations by the NCP about the OECD Guidelines have been postponed or have been re-scheduled online.
We all wish you lots of strength during this difficult time,
The Netherlands NCP for OECD guidelines
