What are the benefits of joining ICC? 

Members represent a broad cross-section of business activity, including manufacturing, trade, services, banking and law in more than 170 countries, ranging from the world’s largest companies to SMEs, business associations, banks, law firms, and local chambers of commerce. 

ICC’s network is unparalleled. It offers the privilege of being uniquely placed to understand the practical challenges faced by businesses of all sizes and speak on its behalf, with authority, to policymakers that determine decisions affecting how business operates on a day-to-day basis.    

With access to governments and international forums, ICC ensures the voice of our members is heard on all aspects of business including trade, investment, sustainability, taxation, competition law and intellectual property. Members of ICC are informed of what matters at an early stage and provided constructive guidance on how to engage in relevant policy discussions. They also play an active part in drawing up rules and guidelines that can help business reduce costs and uncertainties – on arbitration, international banking issues and commercial contracts. 

The diversity of our members is reflected in the solutions we deliver, combining global perspective with local expertise towards one core purpose: to enable business to secure peace, prosperity and opportunity for all. 

How can a business join ICC’s Global  network?

There are three entry points for membership: 

National committees

ICC national committees drive the adoption and implementation of ICC policies to government authorities, administrative agencies and other institutions. In addition, they make sure that national business concerns and perspectives are taken into account in ICC’s policy recommendations to governments and international organisations. 

Companies, banks, law firms, chambers of commerce, individuals, associations, and other organisations can join ICC through the national committee or group in their country or region, automatically becoming a member of ICC at both the international and national level.  

Chamber members 

Chambers of commerce play a pivotal role in connecting ICC to smaller businesses worldwide and promoting their role in the global economy. All chambers that are members of ICC can also become members of the World Chambers Federation (WCF), which comprises local, regional, national, bilateral, transnational, as well as public-law and private-law chambers. They are all eligible to serve on the WCF General Council responsible for setting the strategic direction and development of WCF’s leading chamber services. 

Direct membership 

In countries where a national committee has yet to be formed, please contact the ICC International Secretariat in Paris for information on becoming a direct member. 

Direct membership fees are reflective of how the World Bank classifies your country’s economy.
