The International Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1919. Today it groups over 6 million companies and associations from over 130 countries. National Committees in the world’s major capitals co-ordinate with their membership to address the concerns of the business community and to convey to their governments the business views formulated by ICC.
ICC is the world business organization, the only representative body that speaks with authority on behalf of enterprises from all sectors in every part of the world. 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 on countless thousands of transactions every day and have become part of the fabric of international trade.
