Case overview

Date filed 6 November 2014
Current status Concluded
Issue Environmental impact of capital mining company in Chile
Summary of the case In November 2014, the Chilean NCP received a request for review from a municipality alleging that a multinational company had breached the environment provisions of the Guidelines with their operations in a specific region of Chile.
Developments/Outcome The NCP undertook an initial assessment and focused on whether the questions raised by the applicant merited in-depth examination. Before the NCP contacted the multinational enterprise however, the applicant notified the NCP that they and the multinational enterprise were negotiating an agreement on the matter.

On this basis, and having waited for a two-month period, the NCP concluded that the specific instance didn't need further, additional, consideration by the NCP. The NCP has prepared a final statement closing the case.
