Structure of CCS

CCS comprises three specialised Bureaux and a Cybercrime Unit that provides technical support to all three. Each Bureau operates as an autonomous membership association offering its members a full range of resources. Companies and individuals can become members of an individual Bureau according to their business type and requirements, or in more complex situations they may benefit from association with more than one Bureau. A breakdown of the membership fee structure can be found in the Membership section.

International Maritime Bureau (IMB)

Dedicated to the prevention of trade finance, maritime, transport and trade fraud and malpractice, the IMB is a focal point for the international trading and shipping industry and those associated with facilitating the movement of goods. The IMB also manages the ICC Piracy Reporting Centre, which is dedicated to the suppression of piracy and armed robbery against ships.

Financial Investigation Bureau (FIB)

Formerly known as the Commercial Crime Bureau, FIB provides commercial banks, the financial services sector and investors with a range of ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC), financial fraud and anti-money laundering services that help members balance risk against reward and avoid becoming the victims of financial scams.

Counterfeiting Intelligence Bureau (CIB)

CIB is one of the world’s leading organisations dedicated to combating the counterfeiting of products and documents, protecting the integrity of intellectual property and brands, and preventing copyright abuse. CIB hosts the International Hologram Image Register and publishes the International Anti-Counterfeiting Directory annually.
