The International Color Consortium was formed in 1993 by eight vendors in order to create an open, vendor-neutral color management system which would function transparently across all operating systems and software packages.

The ICC specification, currently on version 4.3,[1] allows for matching of ISO.

The ICC profile which describe the color attributes of a particular device or viewing requirement by defining a mapping between the source or target color space and a profile connection space (PCS).

The ICC defines the format precisely but does not define algorithms or processing details. This means there is room for variation between different applications and systems that work with ICC profiles.

At the beginning of 2014, ICC membership has grown to a total of 61 members, including their founding, regular, and honorary members.
