At the heart of international business are rules, norms, standards and tools that help facilitate the daily flow of global commerce.
The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has three main activities: rule setting, arbitration and policy. Because its member companies and associations are themselves engaged in international business, ICC has unrivaled authority in making rules that govern the conduct of business across borders. Although these rules are voluntary, they are observed in countless thousands of transactions every day and have become part of the fabric of international trade.
In total, there are 12 global ICC commissions accessible to the professionals of the selected Belgian companies. Indulging yourself to join an ICC commission is opening the gate for a unique source of information and the opportunity to join, on a voluntary basis, groundbreaking initiatives in trade policy or rule setting. Each member company or association pays a yearly membership fee that allows an unlimited number of collaborators to join any ICC global commission. Each commission is active in rule setting and policy. While a considerable work is done with members online, the meetings of each commission are an invaluable opportunity for networking among peers from all over the world.
