The ICC working groups are a tool to support the ICC members, develop and maintain services, implement the ideas of the ICC General Assembly, support ICC Projects and react to emerging issues. The working group teams consist of thematic experts working for the member organisations and member countries of ICC around the globe. Each group has a WG Leader and a Team. Each group has a clear strategic aim as well as several specific goals linked to output such as organisation of events or networking, new ICC standards, guidelines or scientific papers. The activities are organised in tasks or WG specific projects with a defined duration. The Working Groups are coordinated by the ICC Technical Director, Amine Jbeily. Currently the following WGs are in place:
