Task Force SFM

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 second 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 from the baselines from which the breadth of the territorial sea is measured. This partial submission covers only the Southern Continental Shelf of the Faroe Islands. The Government of the Kingdom of Denmark together with the Government of the Faroes made their first partial submission for the continental shelf north of the Faroe Islands on 29 April 2009. Collection of scientific and technical data continues for three remaining areas for which a submission from the Kingdom of Denmark is anticipated:

- an area south-west of Greenland
- an area north-east of Greenland
- an area north of Greenland.
