The International Committee of the Decorative Laminates Industry (ICDLI) was founded in 1961 by laminates associations from Belgium, France and Germany. Over the course of the following years associations from Austria, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and Spain also joined.

Since 1999 the ICDLI has been an association established under Belgian law and has had its official Head Office in Brussels.

In 2000 the status of the ICDLI was changed from that of an umbrella association to an association with individual member companies.
