The ICC Banking Commission is a leading global rule-making body for the banking industry creating universally accepted rules and guidelines for international banking practice.  ICC rules on documentary credits, UCP 600, are the most successful privately drafted rules for trade ever developed.  They are estimated to be the basis of trade transactions involving more than one trillion dollars a year.  The Banking Commission is equally a worldwide forum of trade finance experts whose common aim is to facilitate international trade finance across the world.
