In the U.S., ICC Basis requires a membership fee, undisclosed but based on
sales, that appears to be in the thousands. The exception is for lawyers in
solo practice, $500. As a result, there are almost no smaller businesses.

   It clearly speaks for large organizations, not the general U.S.
corporate body.
