Organisational structure

The ICDA consists of a permanent team based in Paris (France) and in Beijing (China). A Council of a maximum of 20 seats representing a spread of geographical regions and chrome industry sectors and seven standing committees composed of volunteers from member companies bring expertise and knowledge of the challenges the industry may face.

The committees cover areas that are critical for the ICDA and the chromium industry, they drive the ICDA strategy and participate in the service offer development and projects follow-up.

The ICDA Management has a key role in overseeing the strategy of the organisation and its implementation by the ICDA team for the benefit of the members and the chromium industry.

Since the ICDA is an organisation created by industry for the industry, members can volunteer to take part in committee activities as well as apply for Council election (subject to membership category).
