[edit] Mission

The United States Council for International Business advances the global interests of American business both at home and abroad. It is the American affiliate of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the Business and Industry Advisory Committee (BIAC) to the OECD, and the International Organisation of Employers (IOE). As such, it officially represents U.S. business positions both in the main intergovernmental bodies and vis-à-vis foreign business communities and their governments.

USCIB addresses a broad range of policy issues with the objective of promoting an open system of world trade, finance and investment in which business can flourish and contribute to economic growth, human welfare and protection of the environment.

USCIB formulates its positions in numerous committees and other working bodies composed of business experts drawn from its membership of 300 global corporations, professional firms and industry associations. It advocates these positions to the U.S. government and to intergovernmental organizations such as the OECD, the WTO, the ILO and other bodies of the U.N. system with which its international affiliates have official consultative status on behalf of world business.

USCIB helps facilitate international trade through its work on harmonization of commercial practices in the ICC. It issues and guarantees ATA Carnets, documents under which merchandise can be temporarily imported duty-free into the U.S. and other countries. It promotes use in the U.S. of the ICC International Court of Arbitration for the settlement of commercial disputes.

[edit] ICC Dispute Resolution Services

The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has long been the world’s preeminent organization in the field of international commercial dispute resolution.

  • Arbitration
  • Pre-arbitral Referee
  • Appointing Authority
  • Amicable Dispute Resolution (ADR)
  • Dispute Board Rules
  • ICC International Centre for Expertise
