Abstract: Let $ f:({C^n},0) \to ({C^k},0)$ be the germ of an isolated complete intersection singularity. The structure of strata $ \mu = \operatorname{const} $ in a critical set of $ f$ is studied. The main result is the following: if the dimension of the stratum $ \mu = \mu (0)$ is $ k - 1$, then $ f$ coincides with a family of hypersurface singularities with constant Milnor number.
