The International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA)

The International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (Organisation Internationale des Contructeurs d’Automobiles - OICA) was founded in Paris, France, in 1919. The organization’s purpose is to represent the interests of vehicle manufacturers, assemblers, and importers. It does this by linking the national automobile associations of member nations, studying issues of mutual interest related to the development and future of automobile manufacturing, and collecting and circulating useful information between members.

The OICA also establishes policies of mutual interest for members and represents the auto industry at the international level, in particular with intergovernmental and international bodies. Additionally, it disseminates and promotes industry policies and positions. The OICA consists of 37 members and four committees: exhibitions, technical, statistics, and communications.
