Part I: The line bounding the English Channel and its approaches to the south and west

The line bounding the English Channel and its approaches to the south and west shall be a line which:

    • (i) commences at the southernmost point of the island of Ushant;

    • (ii) from that point, then follows the parallel of latitude 48°27`00.00" N westwards to the point where it intersects with a line (hereafter referred to as ``the 1983 Bonn Agreement line") drawn 50 nautical miles west of a line joining the Isles of Scilly and the island of Ushant;

    • (iii) from that point of intersection, then follows the 1983 Bonn Agreement line northwards as far as its intersection with the line marking the boundary of the continental shelf between France and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, as defined in the arbitration decision of 30 June 1977;

    • (iv) from that point of intersection, then follows the line of that boundary westwards as far as the point 48°10`00.00" N 9°22`15.91" W; and

    • (v) from that point, then follows the parallel of latitude 48°10`00.00" N westwards as far as the point 48°10`00.00" N 10°0`00.00" W.

Part II: The line bounding to the west and north the other waters covered by the Agreement

The line bounding to the west and north the other waters covered by the Agreement, comprising the Irish Sea, the Celtic Sea, the Malin Sea, the Great Minch, the Little Minch, part of the Norwegian sea and parts of the North East Atlantic, shall be a line which

    • (i) commences at the point 48°10`00.00" N 10°00`00.00" W;

    • (ii) from that point, then follows the western boundary of the Irish sea pollution responsibility zone (that is, a line which is at every point 200 nautical miles distant from the nearest point on the baselines established for the purposes of the Maritime Jurisdiction Acts, 1959 to 1988, of Ireland) as far as the point 56°42`00.00" N 14°00`00.00" W;

    • (iii) from that point, then follows the western boundary of the zone established by the Merchant Shipping (Prevention of Pollution) (Limits) Regulations 1996 of the United Kingdom, as amended by the Merchant Shipping (Prevention of Pollution) (Limits) Regulations 1997 (that is, the lines joining the points listed in Table 1 below in the order in which they are listed) as far as the point 63°38`10.68" N and 0°30`00.00" W; and

    • (iv) from that point follows the parallel of latitude 63°38`10.68" N eastwards to the coast of Norway.
