Elaboration of international trade rules


The International Chamber of Commerce continuously creates and revises rules for international trade such as Incoterms, documentary letters of credit, bank guarantees, ATA carnets, which you use in almost every purchase or delivery contract.


For example, all countries of the world are involved in renegotiating Incoterms, as these must also be recognized worldwide! You know how tough negotiations within Austria can be when it comes to issues such as financial equalization, the Semmering Base Tunnel, etc., so global negotiations are all the more difficult. The ICC coordinates and finances these negotiations and then trains business people and banks all over the world. The ICC ensures that your Russian or Chinese business partner also knows about Incoterms. You save a lot of money here because you don't have to renegotiate every single detail in your contract, but can fall back on globally accepted standard clauses. ICC Austria makes its contribution - also financially - and can only then do this in your interest perceiveif we receive active support from you here.


Economic crime prevention


The ICC-Commercial Crime Bureau is the only worldwide organization that works like a "preventive Interpol". About 80% of the scams run according to recurring patterns. If you know these, you can avoid dangers. ICC Austria alone prevents cases with an offer volume of around Eur 2-3 billion annually.


International arbitration


The ICC International Court of Arbitration is the largest dispute settlement organization in the world. Values ​​in dispute of around € 100 billion are pending at the ICC Court of Arbitration. Austrian companies are both plaintiffs and defendants in international proceedings and Austrian lawyers are sought-after arbitrators in international proceedings.

ICC also organizes "soft" dispute resolution methods e.g. mediation, dispute boards (for construction and plant construction contracts), expertise (for technical mediation and appraisal), DOCDEX (for disputes in international trade and project finance)


Lobbying for international free trade


The ICC is the only private organization that is accredited to the WTO in Geneva on an ongoing basis

to work for tariff dismantling and against trade barriers. The documents distributed by the ICC are among the most widely read at the WTO because they are the only ones to express a globally coordinated industrial position.
