The writer, in turn, manually constructs 3- and 12-nm arcs or bay closing lines using the corrected low water line. The corrected drawing and a paper copy of a current edition of the nautical chart are sent to DOS where Dr Robert Smith, Special Assistant for Ocean Affairs and Policy Planning, reviews my work. He then writes a memorandum describing the changes and submits it to the Chairman of the BC. The Chairman notifies the BC members about charts that need to be reviewed, along with any other related issues that need to be discussed.

In September 1983, the BC decided as a ‘rule of thumb’ that a new edition would be issued if the change was at least one-half the width of the line on the chart. 020 inches). At a scale of 1:80,000, the width of the line is equal to 40 m on the surface. If the line moves as little as 20 m, a new line is constructed. No consideration was given to the various chart scales used. 25 mm on the chart. The majority of charts portraying the 3-, 9, and 12-nm limits are at scales ranging from 1:80,000 to 1:200,000.

These agreements deal principally with the continental shelf, although some refer simply to the delimitation of ‘maritime areas’ between the states concerned. Now that the concept of the Exclusive Economic Zone has become established as a principle of customary international law, despite the fact that the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea has not yet come into effect, it can be expected that future delimitations will increasingly deal with the EEZ as well. Collectively, these agreements fall under the rubric of ‘state practice’.
