On a UK ship, how can it be ascertained whether a coastal State claims a contiguous zone?

By checking Notice No. 12 in the Annual Summary of Admiralty Notices to Mariners. This gives the outer limit of the contiguous zones of each State that claims one; in most cases this is 24 miles or 18 miles, but for North Korea it is 50 miles.
