The legal dispute over the system of deep sea bed exploitation was one of the critical and most controversial problems that faced the Third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea. In spite of that, the 1982 Convention on the Law of the Sea declared the deep sea bed and its resources to be the common heritage of mankind and its exploitation exclusively for the benefit of mankind under an international regime. Some states have enacted unilateral legislation for deep sea bed mining providing a legal framework for their nationals to exploit the resources of the deep sea bed on the basis of freedom of high seas.
