  • environment;
  • combating bribery, bribe solicitation and extortion;
  • consumer interests;
  • science and technology;

The Australian National Contact Point (AusNCP) promotes the use of the OECD Guidelines and contributes to the resolution of issues relating to their implementation, including facilitating access to conciliation services.
