covid19COVID-19 web portal

ICC has launched a COVID-19 web portal, providing trusted and up-to-date information for businesses, policymakers and chambers of commerce worldwide.

The new site has been developed in line with ICC commitments to the World Health Organization (WHO) to facilitate information flows by disseminating the latest and most reliable information on the COVID-19 outbreak to businesses.

A joint ICC/WHO statement issued last month announced plans to leverage ICC’s global network of over 45 million businesses to enable businesses worldwide to play a full and active role in preventing the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.

As a trusted private sector partner, ICC is working closely with business, government and other stakeholders to ensure that the latest, most reliable information and tailored guidance reaches the global business community to help protect lives and livelihoods.

The new knowledge-sharing website contains vetted advice for businesses, policymakers and chambers on how to overcome the unfolding global health and societal emergency presented by COVID-19. It serves as a one-stop-shop for users featuring practical policy recommendations, resources for businesses to understand, prepare for and respond to the unprecedented disruption, and actions undertaken by chambers of commerce in response to COVID-19.

ICC hat eine deutsche Version der „ICC Force Majeure and Hardship Clauses 2020“ veröffentlicht. Mit der Aufnahme der Klauseln in ihre internationale Verträge treffen Unternehmen eine klare Regelung für den Fall, dass eine Vertragspartei aufgrund von höherer Gewalt nicht liefern kann.  Erstmals hat die ICC auch eine kürzere, vereinfachte Fassung veröffentlicht, die sich insbesondere an kleinere und mittelständische Unternehmen richtet.

 

Der höheren Gewalt ("Force Majeure") werden im internationalen Handel unvorhersehbare, unabwendbare Ereignisse zugeordnet, die außerhalb der Kontrolle aller an einem Handelsgeschäft Beteiligten liegen und die unter den gegebenen Umständen mit angemessenen, zumutbaren Mitteln nicht zu vermeiden waren. Dazu gehören z.B. Kriege, Bürgerkriege, Revolutionen, Erdbeben, Hurrican, Feuer oder Pandemien. In diesen Fällen entfällt die Lieferverpflichtung.

Force Majeure wird je nach den von der jeweiligen nationalen Gesetzgebung entwickelten Grundsätze jedoch höchst unterschiedlich interpretiert. Daher bietet die ICC eine Force Majeure-Klausel an, um Vertragspartner die Einigung auf eine international akzeptierten Text zu erleichtern.

International TradeProsperity Week

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on global trade, revealing the fragility of highly complex global value chains, making this week-long event more important than ever. It has put a spotlight on and accelerated the need to act on policy issues such as digitisation as a way to create greater societal equality and sustainability.

ICC International Trade & Prosperity Week (ITPW) will look at the various issues and provide a set of policy recommendations for how global value chains can further evolve to come back better, stronger and smarter, kick-starting the economic recovery.
