The Law of the Sea Information Circular (LOSIC) is issued twice a year by the Division for Ocean Affairs and the Law of the Sea (DOALOS), Office of Legal Affairs. Its objective is to communicate to all States and entities information on actions taken by States Parties to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea of 10 December 1982 (“the Convention”) in implementing that Convention, in particular regarding the deposit obligation, as well as to report on activities undertaken by DOALOS in this respect.

The purpose of LOSIC is also to assist States Parties to the Convention in discharging their obligations to give due publicity to information in accordance with the Convention.

La Circulaire d'information sur le droit de la mer est publiée deux fois par an par la Division des affaires maritimes et du droit de la mer du Bureau des affaires juridiques. Elle a pour objet d'informer les États et entités des mesures prises par les États Parties à la Convention des Nations Unies sur le droit de la mer (la Convention) pour donner effet à ses dispositions, en particulier concernant les obligations de dépôt, et de faire rapport aux États et entités des activités menées par la Division dans le même but.

La Circulaire a également pour objet d'aider les États Parties à la Convention à s'acquitter de l'obligation que leur fait celle-ci de donner la publicité voulue aux informations pertinentes.
