Australia and Timor-Leste Maritime Boundary Treaty

Until such time as this Treaty enters into force, the Timor Sea Treaty (which establishes the JPDA) and the International Unitisation Agreement will remain in force. The Treaty shall enter into force when Australia and Timor-Leste have notified each other that their respective requirements for entry into force have been fulfilled. For Australia, this requires the passage of implementing legislation through the Parliament.
