The ICDA is proactive in using communication to connect the world chromium community with its fellow metal associations, in particular the steel industry. The ICDA has developed a high-performing communications platform to promote chrome's benefits in the marketplace and address market threats.
The ICDA website gives chromium news and market updates.
The user-friendly website provides statistics and documentation (HSE Guidelines, the Directory of Members, brochures, videos, etc.), available on request and kept up-to-date for its target audiences, from general public to market analysts.
Statistical reports: The ICDA issues a number of publications, including the Weekly Market Update and monthly, quarterly and annual market research bulletins, available to Members. The weekly newsletter contains a market overview of chrome ore, ferrochrome, stainless steel, nickel and the manufacturing sector, covering production and consumption figures, trade data and inventory changes.
The ICDA organises annual events for the industry and is the industry's most important networking platform, with two meetings a year – a "Members only" meeting and an Annual Conference. The Association is also developing regional Chrome Ore conferences.
