SSL Certificate: International Governing Rules

Is there an International Governing Body for SSL?  For example, regarding website domain names there's ICANN.  Is there some similar for SSL certificates?

Here's the situation we have: in applying for an SSL certificate the SSL provider is asking for obvious details: name of business; address, etc.  Our situation is unique: our servers are in the USA, while most of our customers are in country b and our credit card processing is done by company b in country b, through our local partner in that country.  

Need to know if there are specific rules for SSL that govern how we should handle what to list in the certificate itself: should I list our website name and USA company in the SSL, or should I list the name of the local partner where the transactions will actually be done?

Thank you.

I don't believe there is an official international organization.  The organizations that have a say in that are your bank, your credit card processor and your certificate provider.  Your certificate provider will be insuring someone or something and if you want the insurance to be valid, you have to follow their rules.  Your PCI scanning company may have an opinion on it too.
