The International Committee on GNSS (ICG), is a voluntary United Nations–backed association that brings together GNSS and augmentation providers — including the United States, Russia, European Union, China, India, and Japan.

The purpose of the group is to encourge consultations among ICG members for the benefit of GNSS users and their service needs; to achieve compatibility and strive toward interoperability among the systems and to help developing countries integrate satellite positioining, navigation and timing services into their infrastructures.

The forums also focus communication between GNSS providers and the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization), ITU (International Telecommunication Union) and the IMO (International Maritime Organization) and other similar groups.

Previous meetings have been held in Prague, Czech Republic; Dubai; Beijing, China; Tokyo, Japan; Turin, Italy; St. Petersburg, Russia; Pasadena,California USA; Bangalore, India; and the founding meeting in Vienna, Austria.
