Şerban Alexandru STĂNESCU, Assistant Professor, General principles of the international cooperation in the field of the protection of the marine environment against pollution, reflected in the Convention of the United Nations on the Law of the Sea
The Convention of the United Nations on the Law of the Sea (Montego Bay, 1982) institutes a minimal level of protection of the marine environment against pollution. Thus, one establishes the general principles of the international cooperation with regard to the prevention of the pollution of the marine environment (by sources placed on the ground or in the atmosphere; by immersion; by exploitation of the abiotic resources of the seas and oceans and continental shelf), elimination/limitation of the effects of pollution and the engagement of the responsibility for pollution of the marine environment. The principles established by the Convention of Montego Bay are developed by specialized international conventions (having an universal or a regional vocation) and by regulations adopted at the national level.
