The World Council, is the supreme authority of ICC. The Council ensures the implementation of the provisions of the ICC Constitution and Charter and exercises all the prerogatives with which it is vested.
The ICC World Council is the equivalent of the general assembly of a major intergovernmental organization. In this case however, the delegates are business executives and not government officials. National committees appoint delegates to the Council, which normally meets once a year. Ten direct members – from countries where there is no national committee – may also be invited to participate in the Council's work.
