Chapter Summary

The Russian Federation was the first to make a submission, on 20 December 2001, thus marking a new phase in the implementation of the Convention. This chapter addresses some of the main issues underlying the current practice. It states that answers to existing and future issues is found only by remaining true to the principles contained in the Law of the Sea (LOS) Convention provisions on the nature of the continental shelf and the role of the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS). Most of the coastal states decided to make partial submissions. The sovereignty rights exercised by coastal states over the continental shelf for the purposes of exploration and exploitation of their natural resources are exclusive and do not depend on effective or notional occupation, or on any express proclamation.

Keywords: CLCS; continental shelf; Law of the Sea (LOS) Convention; sovereignty rights
