Baseline Law


This law provides for one baseline around the archipelago and separate baselines for the "regime of islands" outside the archipelago.

Baselines are lines drawn along the low water mark of an island or group of islands which mark the end of the internal waters and the beginning of the territorial sea. Each country must draw its own baselines according to the provisions of the Law of the Sea. (R.A. 9522, Bernas, 1987 Philippine Constitution: A Comprehensive Reviewer, 2011 edition)
