ICC Trade Register
It was in 2009 that ICC created a Register database of trade finance transactions to demonstrate to regulators and policy makers the low-risk nature of lending and guarantees that support imports and exports. During its initial period, the Register contained data from 5.22 million trade transactions conducted around the world by nine leading international banks.
The Register’s early information showed that most of the US$2.5 trillion worth of trade deals were short-term in nature, averaging 115 days. The banks participating in the project reported only 1,140 defaults in these transactions.

The ICC Global Surveys came into existence when the World Trade Organization (WTO) asked ICC to provide data for the G-20 meeting of world leaders at their first economic Summit, held in 2008.
From 2009, with contributions from its partners and under the direction of the Market Intelligence Working Group, the surveys have provided leaders with independent, accurate and in-depth analysis of trends in trade finance to keep them at the forefront of industry knowledge.
The surveys provide that intelligence.
