Chapter Summary

Section A (General Provisions) of the Rules is an innovation introduced by the Tribunal. The first general principle articulated in section A is proceedings in cases before the Tribunal shall be in two phases: written and oral. The purpose of the two-phase proceedings is to enable the Tribunal to have the benefit of the fullest presentation of the cases of the parties. These provisions state that communications to the Tribunal should be addressed through the Registrar (article 51) and that communications from the Tribunal to the parties should be transmitted through the agents of the parties (article 52). For the latter purpose, there is a general provision which mandates the appointment of agents by all parties to cases before the Tribunal. This chapter of the book The Rules of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea: A Commentary contains articles and commentaries related to General Provisions.
