Chapter Summary

The tenth anniversary of the opening for signature of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (?the Convention?) fell in 1992. The Convention has the potential to be one of the major achievements of the United Nations in the legal sphere. Subject to one important qualification, the tenth anniversary of the Convention marked a significant advance upon the situation in 1982. There has been great progress towards the harmonisation of the maximum limits of national jurisdiction. Resolution I of the Third UN Conference on the Law of the Sea established the Preparatory Commission for the International Seabed Authority and for the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, usually known as ?Prepcom?, which began work in 1983.
