In draft 4 of the IHO's publication S-23 Limits of Oceans and Seas, 2002, the area is described in a chapter under the heading South China & Eastern Archipelagic Seas.

The waters of the East Indian Archipelago are:

  1. Banda Sea - 695,000 km²
  2. Arafura Sea - 650,000 km²
  3. Timor Sea - 610,000 km²
  4. Java Sea - 320,000 km²
  5. Celebes Sea - 280,000 km²
  6. Sulu Sea - 260,000 km²
  7. Molucca Sea - 200,000 km²
  8. Seram Sea - 12,000 km²
  9. Flores Sea - 240,000 km²
  10. Halmahera Sea - 95,000 km²
  11. Bali Sea - 45,000 km²
  12. Savu Sea - 35,000 km²
  13. Gulf of Boni
  14. Gulf of Tomini
  15. Makassar Strait

Six of the seas, the two gulfs, and the strait are wholly waters of Indonesia. The Sulu Sea, lying between the Philippines and Sabah (a state of Malaysia on the island of Borneo), is not entirely in Indonesian waters. The other five seas are partially Indonesian.

Five countries have exclusive economic zones (EEZ) that extend into one or more of the five seas that are partially Indonesian. Apart from the Sulu Sea, Philippine and Malaysian EEZs also extend into the Celebes Sea. The East Timor EEZ is wholly within the Savu, Banda, and Timor Seas. Australia's EEZ extends into both the Timor and Arafura Seas and Papua New Guinea's EEZ extends into the Arafura Sea from its far southwest coast.
