Description: IMPLICATIONS OF THE UNITED NATIONS CONVENTION ON THE LAW OF THE SEA FOR THE INTERNATIONAL MARITIME ORGANIZATION Study by the Secretariat of the International Maritime Organization (IMO). This document is intended to provide a comprehensive overview of the work of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) as it relates to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea ("the Convention" or "UNCLOS"). Originally prepared in 1987 and issued as document LEG/MISC.1, this survey has been substantially revised and updated. The present version updates LEG/MISC.7 by reflecting developments that have taken place from January 2012 to December 2013. It was finalized in consultation with the Division for Ocean Affairs and the Law of the Sea of the Office of Legal Affairs of the United Nations (DOALOS).
Part I includes comments and concepts of relevance in assessing the general legal framework relating to UNCLOS and the work of IMO and its instruments.
Part II provides a detailed analysis of the relationship between UNCLOS and various IMO instruments.
Part III deals with the role of IMO in settling disputes, in the light of the UNCLOS provisions in this area.
In Part IV consideration is given to the scope of IMO activities since the entry into force of UNCLOS and to the possibilities of modifying or extending the Organization's functions and responsibilities.
The annex contains a table showing the relationship between articles of UNCLOS and relevant IMO instruments.
An updated table of the status of all IMO treaty instruments referred to in this document, including those in the annex, can be found on the IMO website (
