The Commission on Corporate Responsibility and Anti-corruption has been a pioneer in the business fight against corruption, issuing in 1977 its first version of the ICC Rules of Conduct to combat Extortion and Bribery

With over 300+ members from 40 countries, the commission provides for a global forum including business executives and private practitioners in various fields of ethics and compliance.

ABOUT THE COMMISSION

The ICC Commission on Corporate Responsibility and Anti-corruption is a leading global private sector body that develops rules of conduct, best practices and advocacy for fighting corruption and for corporate responsibility.

ICC took the lead among business organizations in denouncing corruption and in developing rules to combat it. The ICC Rules on Combating Corruption constitute the cornerstone of ICC’s anti-corruption work, serving both as a tool for self-regulation by business and as a roadmap for governments in their efforts to fight extortion and bribery.

In addition to these flagship ICC Rules, the commission has developed a suite of crucial anti-corruption tools for companies to use proactively as part of their integrity programmes. The Commission on Corporate Responsibility and Anti-corruption also provides business with practical instruments for responsible business conduct. ICC works closely with intergovernmental organizations involved in anti-bribery law, guidelines and policy, such as the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UN-ODC) and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development(OECD).

  • Prepare an ICC business integrity compendium of ICC anticorruption guidelines and rules.
  • Begin work towards developing guidance for companies on conflicts of interest.
  • Shape G20/Business 20 anti-corruption policy, drawing from ICC’s anti-corruption tools as a basis for concrete action by business for fighting corruption.
  • Uphold the approach taken by the UN Guiding Principles on business and human rights, with a view to ensuring the balance between the corporate responsibility to respect human rights and the State duty to protect these rights, and provide business views into the UN discussions on a possible international legally binding instrument.
  • Provide global business input into international initiatives on corporate responsibility and anti-corruption, including the implementation of the UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Anti-Bribery Convention and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.
  • Liaise with the ICC Academy on its development of online anti-corruption training based on the ICC Ethics and Compliance Training Handbook.
  • Contribute global business views on corporate responsibility reporting.
  • Promote the broadest use of the ICC Anti-corruption Third Party Due Diligence Guide for SMEs.
