Marine affairs have a long history and tradition in China as it is a major coastal state. In the early 1980s, China began its efforts towards the establishment of a marine legal system. However, there have been a number of problems with China's marine legislation and enforcement. The entry into force of the LOS Convention and China's ratification in May 1996 have produced new opportunities as well as challenges in establishing China's marine legal system. This article attempts to review the existing elements of the Chinese marine laws and regulations, to examine them in the context of international treaties, particularly the LOS Convention, and finally to indicate the general trends of development in the construction of China's marine laws and regulations so as to establish and improve its marine legal system.
