The Organisation for Economic Development (OECD) Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises (MNEs) sets out standards to prevent MNEs from contributing to human rights violations. It is one of the few international mechanisms available to regulate and hold multinational corporations accountable. Countries that have agreed to adhere to the OECD Guidelines (“member countries”) establish National Contact Points (“NCPs”). NCPs are like the implementation mechanism of the OECD, located in most European countries, and tasked with enforcing the implementation of the OECD Guidelines. Open Secrets and CALS laid a complaint against two European banks, KBC and KBL, at the Belgium and Luxembourg OECD NCPs in April 2018, asking them to make findings on their role in aiding and abetting the apartheid government bust the United Nations arms embargo and procure arms to be used in maintaining the apartheid state.
