Publikation: Bog/rapportRapport (offentligt tilgængelig)


The Kingdom of Denmark signed the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (hereafter “the Convention”) on the day it was opened for signature and ratified it on 16 November 2004. It entered into force for the Kingdom of Denmark on 16 December 2004.

This Partial Submission is the third step in fulfilling the Kingdom of Denmark’s obligation under Article 76(8) and Article 4 of Annex II to the Convention to submit information on the outer limits of its continental shelf beyond 200 nautical miles (M) from the baselines from which the breadth of the territorial sea is measured. The Government of the Kingdom of Denmark made its first and second partial submissions together with the Government of the Faroes, regarding the northern and southern continental shelf of the Faroe Islands, on 29 April 2009 and 2 December 2010, respectively. This Partial Submission, which is the first one related to Greenland, covers only the Southern Continental Shelf of Greenland. Collection of scientific and technical data continues in the two remaining areas for which submissions are contemplated:

- an area east of Greenland; and
- an area north of Greenland.
