ICC Austria

  • advises companies on the possibilities and advantages of mediation,

The advantage of mediation is rather obvious since the conflict is solved

  • fast
  • cost effective

  • and satisfactory for both parties.

ICC Austria & Prevention of White-Collar Crime

ICC Austria provides for hands-on practical advice on how to protect your business against white-collar crime, which affects a growing number of enterprises throughout the world. The economic damages caused by this are often underestimated. Conservative estimates show that the total annual loss resulting from white-collar crime in Austria amounts to EUR 25 billion.

Loss results, above all, from:

  • Fraud within the company,
  • Fraud in import and export trade
  • Investment fraud
  • Fraud with loan offers and project financing
  • corruption prevention
  • Prevention of industrial espionage
  • IT-security - "social engineering"
  • counterfeiting

We would like to raise awareness that:

  • systematical education on known modi operandi can prevent criminal acts

  • profits - you need for innovation and reinvestment

ICC Austria cooperates closely with the ICC International Commercial Crime Bureau and the ICC Counterfeiting Intelligence Bureau, London

Help to form the global legal framework for your international business

ICC has created numerous specialized working groups to form and adapt the legal environment for globally active companies. These bodies range from working groups to formulate rules for bank guarantees and Incoterms, to “ICC Commissions” lobbying for global sustainable free trade and investment. These Commissions are composed of business experts from around the world who examine major issues of interest to the business world. They prepare policy products, including statements to contribute to intergovernmental discussions, as well as rules and codes to facilitate international business transactions.

ICC Austria appoints experts to those commissions. These experts then will take part in all major international negotiations and decisions, therefore ensuring that Austrian business concerns will be taken into account.

We invite our members to participate with their expertise in those international working groups.
