        Abstract

The 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOs or the Conven-
tion) is one of the most important accomplishments in the development of interna-
tional law in the twentieth century. As a comprehensive compilation of the modern
law of the sea, the UNCLOs not only codifies numerous customary rules of law of the
sea, but also progressively develops the treaty rules of law of the sea. Especially the
three bodies established by the UNCLOS, namely the International Seabed Authority
(ISA), the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) and the Commission
on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS), have played an important role in facili-
tating the implementation of the UNCLOS and promoting stability and development
of the international marine order. As a member of the big family of the States Parties
to the UNCLOS, China has been faithfully fulfilling the obligations of the UNCLOS, fully
engaged in the work of the three bodies and actively contributing its solutions and
wisdom. In the process of implementing the UNCLOS, China has formed its own prac-
tices and policies.
