On 2 December 2010, the Kingdom of Denmark submitted to the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf, in
accordance with Article 76, paragraph 8, of the United Nations Convention on the
Law of the Sea, information on the limits of the continental shelf beyond 200 nautical miles from the baselines
from which the breadth of the territorial sea is measured regarding the Southern Continental Shelf of the Faroe
Islands, the Faroe-Rockall Plateau Region.

According to the submitting State,

together with the Government of the Faroes", which "concerns only the area regarding the Southern Continental Shelf of the Faroe
Islands, the Faroe-Rockall Plateau Region. The Kingdom of Denmark intends to submit separate information on
maritime areas north, north-east, and south of Greenland".
In accordance with the Rules of
Procedure of the Commission, a communication is being circulated to all Member
States of the United Nations, as well as States Parties to the Convention, in
order to make public the executive summary of the partial submission, including
all charts and coordinates contained in that summary.

made by Denmark will be included in the provisional agenda of the twenty-seventh

of the submission, the Commission will make recommendations pursuant to Article
