Arbitration of Disputes Relating to Outer Space Activities

The Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) has adopted the Optional Rules for Arbitration of Disputes Relating to Outer Space Activities. The Rules are based on the 2010 UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules with some changes. The International Bureau of the Permanent Court of Arbitration will serve as registry for the proceedings and provide secretariat services.

The final text in English is available here. The Rules are now also available on the PCA website at http://www.pca-cpa.org.
