This Committee is composed of delegates nominated by members and associate members which represent sellers and buyers of raw cotton. It is concerned with any matters pertaining to raw cotton production and marketing, including international cotton marketing policies.

Examples of matters dealt with by the Committee in recent years are: guidelines for purchasing raw cotton; harmonization of rule and contract conditions; value differences in raw cotton; contamination and foreign matter; cotton bale identification and bale wrapping; universal cotton standards; cotton development and promotion.

It is through the Joint Cotton Committee and the Spinners Committee that ITMF deals with governments, international organizations and trade associations interested in raw cotton production, trading and marketing.
