ICDC since its very inception has been collecting and documenting books, journals, reprints of published articles, technical reports,  bibliographies, slides and films from various sources throughout the world. Technical information requested by members is  provided from this vast pool of data and literature, which  is constantly  being up-dated.

The Centre has also  been building up an information bank on fact-based data relating to production of copper, its manufacturing technology, and utilisation of copper and copper based products.

The Centre regularly organises seminars, symposia, conferences, and technical meetings in which both Indian and overseas experts are invited to participate. Workshops and technical meetings are held to focus the attention of manufacturers, researchers, industrial consultants, decision makers, specifiers and consumers on latest developments. Such programmes provide the participants a forum for effective exchange of views and ideas.

ICDC while providing effective technical services also acts as an effective liaison body between manufacturers, users, technology developers, equipment suppliers, industries, research institutions and government bodies. ICDC's close association with various organisations both in India and abroad not only helps it in serving efficiently the needs of both the manufacturers and the users but also contributes significantly in formulating standards acceptable to both.

In-plant lecture courses and training programmes, clinics and workshops are arranged both for individual and groups of industries. These programmes help in imparting necessary knowledge not only to the management but also to the shop-floor personnel so that they can overcome day-to-day problems and accomplish improved productivity and product quality.

The Centre also conducts special awareness creation programmes on topics such as benefits of using copper, new applications, innovative products and processes, cost effectiveness, environmental aspects, etc.

The technical officers of the Centre also up-date their knowledge regularly through visits, discussions and literature support. Information received on latest developments are transmitted to the Indian industries to suit the existing facilities of the concerned industry.

To assess the need of the end use sectors both in terms of quality and quantity and the prospects of copper, the Centre undertakes market research on specific request. Some statistical information and data are collected and updated periodically.

Special activities are planned to develop newer market for copper as also to retain its traditional uses based on copper's techno-economic superiority.
