The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) is the voice of the private sector within the UN, WTO, OECD, G20 and other international organisations. Its principal goal lies in promoting free trade and facilitating international investment.
Founded in 1919, ICC is the world business organization. Its members are organized in national committees.
With independent institutions such as the International Court of Arbitration, the Commercial Crime Service as well as by providing guidelines, which promote self-regulation (e.g. Incoterms) and a vast number of publications on setting rules and standards in international trade, ICC supports the international trading system and facilitates the activites of companies.
