The International Seabed Authority expresses its profound shock and sadness upon the death of Caitlyn L. Antrim of the United States. 

Caitlyn passed away suddenly in Kingston, Jamaica on 28 July 2018, after attending the twenty-fourth session of the Assembly of the Authority. 

As a founder member of the Rule of Law Committee for the Oceans, Caitlyn devoted her life to advancing the common heritage of mankind and especially to the cause of U.S. ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.
over the years, Ms. Caitlyn Antrim developed unique expertise on Part XI of the Convention and always had wise and interesting insights to share on the negotiations of the deep seabed mining regime and on the future of its implementation. 

All of us in the deep seabed mining community will miss her.
