This document reproduces the basic texts of the OECD Declaration and Decisions on International Investment and Multinational Enterprises and its four inter-related elements. All parts of the Declaration are subject to periodical reviews. The most recent review - completed in May 2011 - concerned the Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.
This page reproduces the text of the Declaration which was first adopted by the Governments of OECD Member countries on 21 June 1976. It was reviewed in 1979, 1984, 1991, 2000 and 2011.
Ministers from OECD and developing economies will today agree new guidelines to promote more responsible international business conduct by multinational enterprises, and a second set of guidelines to limit the use of conflict minerals.
The updated OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises were adopted on 25 May 2011. This page provides access to the text, implementation procedures, commentaries and related documents.
