Abstract

This contribution seeks to describe briefly two innovations in the Polish law from the international law, especially UNCLOS, perspective. These are: (a) the adoption of new and more precise regulations concerning the Polish baselines and (b) the establishment by Poland of its Contiguous Zone.

Hence, the structure of the paper is as follows. The two main parts of this paper are devoted to the analysis of baselines and the Contiguous Zone, respectively. Each of them is divided into two main subsections. One describes a given issue from the international law perspective; the other presents the ‘other side of the coin’, namely: the Polish national regulations in that respect. Finally, some concluding remarks are offered in the final section.

Keywords: law of the sea, UNCLOS, baselines, contiguous zone, Polish law
