The regulation is also intended to protect the rights and interests of the explorers, said the SOA.

Citizens, legal persons and other organizations who conduct activities in deep sea areas including resource exploration and exploitation, environmental protection, science and technology research, resource research, need to submit the samples and data collected to authorized organizations, according to the regulation.

The SOA, in charge of submission and collection of deep sea samples and data, is the supervisor and coordinator of the management of samples and data, said the regulation.
