Presentation
The Permanent Arbitration Court at the Croatian Chamber of Commerce (PAC-CCC) was established in 1853. After 1945 the PAC-CCC temporarily ceased to exist. It was reestablished in 1965 when the soviet model of arbitration was abandonned and replaced by the modern Western model of voluntary arbitration. After the independence of Croatia in 1991, PAC-CCC started to be active in the settlement of international commercial disputes. Its Rules of International Arbitration, called also Zagreb Rules, were drafted along the lines of the UNCITRAL Rules.
Functions
