Chapter Summary

This chapter briefly outlines and explains the Norwegian submission and the Commission's recommendations. Norway's submission for establishing the outer limits of the continental shelf beyond 200 nautical miles from the baselines was lodged ten years after the entry into force of the Convention for Norway, on 27 November 2006. The Western Nansen Basin in the Arctic Ocean is bounded in the south by the continental slope of Norway and the Russian Federation. The chapter offers some remarks on possible implications for other states in respect of the law of the sea with regard to pending maritime delimitations and disputed marine areas. States in general appear to have a greater understanding of the meaning of the detailed rules of Article 76 of the LOS Convention and, it follows, the limited mandate enjoyed by the Commission in light of the Convention's provisions.

Keywords: Arctic Ocean; continental shelf; disputed marine areas; LOS convention; maritime delimitations; Norwegian submission; Western Nansen Basin
