Chapter Summary

The Seabed Disputes Chamber enjoys a special status within the Tribunal, given its relationship to the provisions of the Convention setting out the system of exploitation of the resources of the area beyond the limits of national jurisdiction and its innovative jurisdiction. The Chamber has institutional links with the International Seabed Authority in three respects: in the role of the Authority to make recommendations on its composition; in the Authority's procedure for seeking advisory opinions; and in the requirement under article 314 of the Convention that amendments to the provisions of the Statute of the Tribunal dealing with the Chamber be subject to the approval of the Authority.
