PCA Arbitration Rules 2012

December 17, 2012

On December 17, 2012, the Administrative Council of the Permanent Court of Arbitration adopted the “PCA Arbitration Rules 2012,” a new set of procedural rules for the arbitration of disputes involving at least one State, State-controlled entity, or international organization. The PCA Arbitration Rules 2012 are a consolidation of four sets of PCA procedural rules from the 1990s, updated in light of the 2010 revisions to the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules and the PCA’s experience with its existing procedural rules and the 1976 UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules.

The PCA Arbitration Rules 2012 were developed by a drafting committee of leading practitioners of international arbitration, including Dechert counsel, Alvaro Galindo.
