Date created: 20 May 2019
This date indicates the date the dataset metadata was created on Pacific Data Hub.

The National Seas Act 1977 states that delimitation of boundaries in relation to neighboring states, the offshore seas of the State extend to a distance of 200 miles seaward from the baselines and, unless otherwise specified, shall be deemed to comprise all the waters outside the baselines and within a line proclaimed for the purposes of this section by the Head of State, acting on advice, in the National Gazette.

Work is still in progress with UN DOALOS to arrange for publication of Regulations made under the Maritime Zone Act 2015 which contains the coordinates and describes PNG's rights and jurisdiction over its EEZ.
