Abstract: This chapter aims to look into the development of a maritime legal regime applicable to the Arctic and China’s role in such development. It argues that China should play a proactive part in the adoption of the mandatory Polar Code within the IMO. The first part of this chapter looks into recent developments concerning Arctic shipping including the development of the Polar Code. The second part first discusses China’s interest in Arctic shipping. Then it analyses challenges and oppor- tunities for China’s role in the development of international law on Arctic shipping, with a focus on (1) China and Article 234 of the UNCLOS; (2) China and development of the Polar Code within the IMO; and (3) China as a newcomer within the Arctic Council.
