The Secretariat is governed by an ICC World Council made up of representatives from member countries. The UK is a founding member of ICC with three representatives on the ICC World Council.
ICC United Kingdom is governed by the UK Board.
All National offices and representatives operate under a Partnership Agreement with the Secretariat and pay an annual fee, a bit like a franchise fee. We all share the following core responsibilities, to:
National offices function as independent entities with most co-located within national Chambers of Commerce, particularly in the emerging markets. There are a small number of mostly larger offices that function as fully independent offices, like ICC United Kingdom.
Most national offices tailor ICC’s global Programme of Action to suit national business priorities with the larger offices also running wider, complimentary services.
ICC’s global programme of action makes up approximately 50% of UK services with an expanding family of wider international services also on offer including United Nations, World Trade Organization and G20 engagement, events, collaborations with other ICC offices, the Digital Trade Network, Campaigns, World Business Podcasts and Rising Star Programmes. Visit our Services section for more details.
Members and partners are the decision makers within ICC United Kingdom, advising the team on programme activities and benefitting from priority access to products and services.
We have a rich mix of relationships with our wider network, collaborating on campaigns and bespoke projects.
The UK government is an important partner to ICC at international level. We have a close working relationship with government officials co-operating on policy development and advocacy with officials participating on an ex-oficio basis in a number of policy forums.
