Chapter Summary

The 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (LOS Convention) provides for the establishment of three distinct bodies: the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, the International Seabed Authority and the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS, or the Commission). This chapter provides, based on the documents of the Commission, an overview of the work of the Commission since its establishment. It demonstrates how the working methods of the Commission and its interaction with the coastal states concerned evolved over time, due to various factors, including the concerns raised by some states in regard to the conformity of the Rules of Procedure with the Convention. The chapter also highlights milestones in the development of its practice and points out certain challenges that the unique group of experts has been facing.
