The agreement promotes mutual assistance and sharing of facilities and expertise between CRCICA and PCA. By virtue of the agreement, both institutions can hold hearings and meetings in the facilities of each other and are entitled to receive assistance with the arrangement of local support services from the host institution. The CRCICA is known internationally for its State-of-the-Art hearing rooms and its headquarters enjoy immunities and privileges ensuring the necessary independent environment for the holding of the hearings of any proceeding administered by the PCA.

It is worth noting that PCA is the first permanent intergovernmental organization and one of the world’s longest established arbitration institutions established in 1899 to provide a forum for the resolution of international disputes through arbitration and other peaceful means. By signing the CRCICA/PCA agreement, the overall number of institutional cooperation agreements concluded by CRCICA is around 80 cooperation agreements.
