The ICC Commercial Crime Services (CCS), is a specialised division of the International Chamber of Commerce, the world business organisation.
As a specialised bureau within CCS, the Financial Investigation Bureau (FIB) conducts enquiries and investigations into matters associated with money laundering, fraud and suspect documents. Members of FIB include the following:
- International Banks
- Financial Institutions
- National Financial Intelligence Units (FIU)
- National Regulatory & Oversight Authorities
- Law Enforcement Agencies
Through CCS, the FIB has bona fides status with the UK Home Office and with ICPO-INTERPOL, the international police organisation.
FIB conducts a number of activities on behalf of its members and government agencies, including:
- Financial Instrument & Document Analysis
- Transaction Pattern & Trend Analysis
- Due Diligence Research and Analysis
- Comprehensive Background Checks
- Specialised Sanctions & Embargo Checks
- International Financial Crime & Fraud Investigations
- Financial Tracking & Asset Recovery
- Anti-money Laundering & Counter-terrorism Financing Activity
- Litigation Support & Expert Witness Testimony/Evidence
- Development of Prevention, Detection & Internal Security Policies, Measures & Procedures
Building on the foundation and expertise of CCS, the FIB accurately meets the needs of today’s financial institutions and government regulators.
FIB is a direct response to the globalisation and increased sophistication of financial instrument crime used by organised criminal elements to commit money laundering, major fraud and terrorism financing.
FIB is structured to offer a prospective member complete flexibility according to their individual needs. For example a bank may require a specialised service in support of their due diligence operations while a government regulator, such as a Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU), may need the services of the FIB in another capacity.
