ICC is governed by its Executive Board, World Council, Chairmanship and Secretary General.
The governing bodies of ICC are:
- World Council
ICC’s supreme governing body, the World Council is the equivalent of the general assembly of a major intergovernmental organization. In this case however, the delegates are business executives and not government officials.
- Chairmanship and Secretary General
The Chairman, his/her immediate predecessor and the Vice-Chairs form the Chairmanship. ICC’s Secretary General, appointed by the World Council, heads the International Secretariat and works closely with national committees to carry out ICC’s work programme.
- ICC Executive Board
The Executive Board is responsible for developing and implementing ICC’s strategy, policy and programme of action and for overseeing the financial affairs of the organization.
