The International Confederation of Container Reconditioners (ICCR) is a world-wide group representing private container reconditioning companies. ICCR is governed by the three principle trade associations representing Japan, Europe and North America. ICCR membership also includes reconditioning firms operating throughout Australasia. In the near future, ICCR hopes to add as members reconditioning firms operating in Asia, Africa and India.

ICCR provides a coordinated effort on international regulatory, legislative and standards issues. The group holds observer status at the UN Sub-Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, the International Maritime Organization and the International Civil Aviation Organization. ICCR plays an active role in standards development, and its members participate in national, regional and international standards organizations, including ISO.

ICCR has adopted an International Code of Operating Practice for steel and plastic drums, as well as intermediate bulk containers.
