More than 45 million companies in over 100 countries constitute ICC, the world business organization. ICC’s core mission is to make business work for everyone, every day, everywhere. Through a unique mix of advocacy, solutions and standard setting, we promote international trade, responsible business conduct and a global approach to regulation, in addition to providing market-leading dispute resolution services. Our members include many of the world’s leading companies, SMEs, business associations and local chambers of commerce.
We represent business interests at the highest levels of intergovernmental decision-making, whether at the World Trade Organization, the United Nations or the G20 ensuring the voice of business is heard. It is this capacity to bridge the public and private sectors that sets us apart as a unique organization, responding to the needs of any player involved in international commerce.
We also have a long history of formulating the voluntary rules by which business is conducted every day from internationally recognised Incoterms rules to the UCP 600 Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credit that are widely used in international finance.
In addition, we specialise in world-class business and legal training and are an industry-leading publisher of practical tools for international business, banking and arbitration.
So, from the small e-commerce start-up in Istanbul to the multinational software company in Delhi, businesses worldwide can benefit from ICC’s rules and mechanisms for the conduct of trade.
