This article looks into the legal spaces removed from state regulation, in which seafarers have had the opportunity to draw up rules of a private nature to regulate their relations, or in which they benefit from internationally established regulations that restrict the power of the states to legislate about them. The area where it appears to be more appropriate to talk about a socially originated law, whose formation was influenced significantly by the recipients of the norms, is the one that covers the conventional uniform rules of navigation. The organisations that represent the interests of seafarers (from ship owners to seamen’s unions) take part in drawing up these regulations more than in other sectors of the laws governing international transport and commerce. An essential document in this regard is the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, dated 10 December 1982.
