The ICC develops and revises continuously rules facilitating the international trade such as Incoterms, rules on letters of credit and bank guarantees as well as ATA-Carnets.
To give you an example: All countries worldwide take part in the re-negotiation of the Incoterms since these need to be acknowledged globally. However, you might have noticed how lengthy and tiresome negotiations on domestic issues in just one country can become, so imagine the effort of finding balanced solutions that work globally. The ICC coordinates and financially supports this global solution finding process and then ensures further, that business people and banks are trained accordingly. In this way it is guaranteed that your Russian or Chinese trade partners know Incoterms as well as you do. Such worldwide accepted model contract clauses will save you time and money because you do not need to negotiate every detail of a new contract again. For us as ICC Austria to maintain our ability to take part in that global process as well as to continue to contribute the Austrian perspective towards it, we rely on your active support!

Der ICC International Court of Arbitration is the biggest dispute resolution organization worldwide. One finds Austrian enterprises on both sides, as applicants as well as respondents. In addition to that Austrian lawyers are much sought after arbitrators in international arbitration proceedings.
Currently, the ICC develops rules on the international electronic commerce, which can be, similar to the Incoterms, agreed upon. However, some jurisdictions plan to implement domestic rules on that. Imagine what it would be like if you were to face more than 100 different domestic sets of rules instead of having to deal and comply with just one, that was especially designed fort he needs of international trade.
