Mandate

To serve as a global forum and rule-making body for banks worldwide, with particular focus on the financing of international trade; and to help policymakers and standard setters create a regulatory framework that facilitates trade finance throughout the world.

  

Priority Projects

  • Upgrade the ICC Trade Register to establish this data pool as the definitive source of market intelligence for trade finance products for banks, investors and regulators.

  •  

  • Make the “business case” for interventions from governments and regulators to ease the supply of trade finance to the real economy – both in relation to the capital treatment of trade assets and financial crime policies.

  •  

  • Champion reforms to the mandates of export credit agencies to scale support for transactions aligned with global sustainability goals.

  •  

  • Update existing ICC rules/guidelines for the processing of trade transactions, in line with market needs and technological developments.

  •  

  • Support the adoption of digital processes by financial institutions under ICC trade finance rules – including through the development of standardized APIs.*
