A selection of RAID's work with bodies, committees and politicians

  • In 2012 RAID met Commissioners and staff of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to advise them on the implementation of the rules on conflict minerals within Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
  • RAID is an independent expert for the UK’s OECD National Contact Point (NCP), which promotes adherence to and investigates allegations of non-compliance with the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. At the same time, RAID submits complaints to the NCP and helped to found OECD Watch, an international consortium of non-governmental organisations that monitors governments’ implementation of the Guidelines.
  • UK Parliamentary Committees and Government Departments invite RAID to submit evidence to and give expert testimony at their hearings and meetings.
  • The ICGLR-OECD-UN’s Groups of Experts regularly invite RAID to participate in their Meetings.
  • RAID attends and arranges for witnesses of human rights abuses to address the UN Forum on Business and Human Rights.
  • Following RAID’s (highly critical) engagement with the development process of the International Code of Conduct for Private Security Providers, the Association overseeing the Code’s implementation has elected RAID to the Board of Directors.
  • In autumn 2012 RAID submitted comments to the UK Parliament on the Financial Services Bill under consideration, because of its relevance not only for the regulation of the London Stock Exchange, but for due diligence on junior and main markets around the world. Polishing the Family Silver - a response to Enhancing the Effectiveness of the Listing Regime.
