Banking Commission 2017-05-18T14:29:39+00:00

The ICC Banking Commission is the World’s Essential Rule-Making Body for the Banking Industry

With over 600+ members from 100 countries, the commission has rightly gained the reputation of being the most authoritative voice in the field of trade finance.

ABOUT THE COMMISSION

Members of the Banking Commission are chosen by ICC national committees who select members from their countries to serve first on their local Banking Committee and then to represent the national committee at the plenary commission meetings. These meetings are generally held twice a year.

The officers of the commission are appointed by the ICC Secretary General and generally serve for a three-year renewable term.

Members do not serve on the commission for specific periods of time, but remain as long as their national committee wishes them to serve.

The basic work of the commission is done by members and a number of task forces, working groups and drafting groups. For example, regarding the production or revision of rules, a drafting group produces initial drafts of a set of rules which are then sent to ICC national committees for comments, suggestions and amendments. These are considered by the commission as a whole, and revised drafts are produced until a final version is reached. This process ensures that the rules are indeed global and represent international practices as national committees and members worldwide are involved in their elaboration from start to finish. Finally, the rules or documents are approved and sent to the ICC Council for formal adoption.

The ICC Banking Commission produces universally accepted rules and guidelines for international banking practice. ICC rules and guidelines on documentary credits, entitled UCP 600, are the most successful privately drafted rules for trade ever developed, serving as the basis of US$2 trillion worth of trade transactions a year.

Used by banking professionals and trade finance experts worldwide, the commission’s publications and Market Intelligence is the industry’s most reputable and reliable source of guidance to bankers and practitioners in a broad range of fields.
