Maritime Claims Reference Manual

Foreword Excerpt

This Manual is reissued under the authority of Department of Defense (DoD) Instruction C-2005.1, “U.S. Program for the Exercise of Navigation and Overflight Rights at Sea (U),” June 21, 1983. It provides a general reference concerning the maritime claims of all coastal nations. Its principal purpose is to facilitate the DoD Freedom of Navigation Program. Consequently, in selecting data for inclusion, primary emphasis has been placed on information concerning claims directly affecting navigation and overflight. Limited information has been included concerning other claims (e.g., Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZ), continental shelf claims, and environmental regulations). DoD 2005.1-M, “Maritime Claims Reference Manual,” April 2, 2001, is hereby canceled.

Preface

As part of the duties as the DoD Representative for Oceans Policy Affairs to, among other things, compile, catalog and disseminate current information on foreign maritime claims, we are undertaking a comprehensive review of these claims. This is being conducted to ensure the most timely and up-to-date information is available that may affect military operations. While this review is ongoing, individual country entries will be marked as (2013) to reflect the entry's currency.
