It is understood that the PCB requested Amir to use its practice facilities during his ongoing five-year ban from the sport, something that is currently prohibited.
The issue is understood to have been brought before last week's ICC annual conference.
An ICC sub-committee of five has been constituted and will consider the PCB request as part of a wider brief to evaluate the ICC's Anti-Corruption Code.
Pakistan are keen to keep Amir close as he will be just 23 when his ban expires and has the chance to revive what was a hugely promising international career before he was disgraced during the 2010 tour of England.
Amir, fellow bowler Mohammad Asif and then captain Salman Butt were caught in a tabloid sting that saw the seam duo bowl no-balls to order at the latter's prompting.
That was a signal that the players were in cahoots with an illegal betting ring and Amir pleaded guilty before being sent to a young offender's institute.
There is no certainty that the ICC panel will recommend Amir be allowed to reconnect with the national board, nor that the game's governing body would ratify any such recommendation.
