For over 60 years ICC has validated and published analytical standard methods applied in safety and quality assessment of cereals and crops, cereal based products, foods and feeds. Validated methods are published in the ICC Standards Collection. ICC Standard Methods serve international trade, national and international legislation, industry standards such as ISO and CEN, and as guidelines for food manufacturers and control laboratories.
Furthermore ICC serves as an independent expert consultant and/or observer to several world and international bodies including the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN), Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), International Standards Association (ISO), International Seed Testing Association (ISTA) and United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO). In addition, ICC has closed formal collaboration agreements with associations in similar and related disciplines including AACC International. ICC methods have been adopted by other leading SDOs (International Standardization Organizations) such as ISO and CEN, where ICC’s specialized focus on cereal-related methods is recognized.
