The Central Commission of the Rhine is an international institution with an administration that enables it to address effectively all the issues concerning inland navigation on the Rhine. Its role is to implement any initiative intended to guarantee freedom of navigation on the Rhine and to promote navigation on the Rhine.

On 16 December 2014, the Council of Europe signed an Agreement with the Central Commission for the Navigation of the Rhine (CCNR) – an international organisation enjoying immunity – so that the Administrative Tribunal of the Council of Europe can examine the related disputes between this organisation and its staff members.
