ICC Commercial Crime Services (CCS) is the anti-crime arm of the International Chamber of Commerce. Based in the UK, CCS’main task is to combat all forms of commercial crime.
CCS is a membership organisation and comprises three specialised Bureaux. These operate autonomously and offer its members a full range of resources. CCS members comprise the legal profession and law enforcement agencies, and companies engaged in international business, shipping, transport and trade, banking, insurance, intellectual property and information technology.
Over two decades, CCS has saved its members billions of dollars by alerting them to the threats and highlighting preventative measures they can take to protect themselves. It has also succeeded in getting fraudsters prosecuted and helped members recover many millions of dollars. Please go to the relevant sections on the website for full details about each Bureau.
