Fighting Commercial Crime

ICC combats all types of crime affecting business, from piracy on the high seas and trade finance fraud to counterfeiting and cybercrime.

New criminal threats

The scope and variety of criminal threats facing business grow ever larger, with the methods of commercial criminals becoming increasingly sophisticated. Through its dedicated crime-fighting division (Commercial Crime Services), policymaking bodies and other initiatives, ICC combats all types of crime affecting business, from piracy on the high seas and trade finance fraud to counterfeiting and cybercrime.

Stamping out corruption

Taking the lead among business organizations in denouncing corruption and developing rules to combat it, the ICC Commission on Corporate Responsibility and Anti-corruption puts forth policy recommendations from a global business perspective and develops practical rules of conduct and best practices for fighting corruption

Commercial Crime Services

ICC’s Commercial Crime Services (CCS) division in the UK is a centralized crime-fighting body – one with a global network and a sterling reputation. It draws on the worldwide resources of its members in the fight against commercial crime.

From its base in London, and comprising three distinct crime-fighting divisions, CCS operates according to two basic precepts: to prevent and investigate commercial crime and to help prosecute commercial criminals. CCS works closely with international law enforcement officials, including Interpol, and uses its expertise and network of members to remain one step ahead of the criminals.

Fighting counterfeiting and piracy of goods

ICC’s Business Action to Stop Counterfeiting and Piracy (BASCAP) initiative connects all business sectors and cut across national borders in the fight against counterfeiting and piracy.

This global approach is designed to support individual company and organizational efforts and amplify business messages with national governments and intergovernmental organizations.
