The International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC) is a global service agency working against child exploitation and abduction.
ICMEC was founded in 1998 by the USA National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) to do similar work in the international arena. In August, 2008, the ICMEC was granted "Special Consultative Status" with the United Nations (UN) Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), primarily to assist the UN by providing expertise regarding the issues of child sexual exploitation and child abduction.
