By joining the ICoC Association, private security companies (PSCs) show their commitment to complying with the fundamental human rights and humanitarian law principles and standards articulated in the ICoC.

 

Certification by the Association is a public statement that the security company’s policies and systems have been independently reviewed and found to be in compliance with the ICoC, and that Member Companies’ activities are continuously monitored.

 

Moreover, as an increasing number of States and non-State clients are requiring ICoC Association membership as a prerequisite to participating in bidding processes, becoming an ICoCA member may open up more business opportunities for Member Companies.

 

Member Companies pay a joining fee ($1000) and an annual due which is determined according to the company’s revenue.
