The most commonly used International Commercial Terms have been developed over time by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and are known as “Incoterms”.

This set of international rules for the interpretation of terms of trade was first published by the ICC in 1936, with the latest amendment introduced from 1st January 2020.
