Mine Ban Policy

The Commonwealth of Dominica signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997 and ratified it on 26 March 1999, becoming a State Party on 1 September 1999. Dominica has never used, produced, imported, exported, or stockpiled antipersonnel mines, including for training purposes. Dominica has not enacted new legislation specifically to implement the Mine Ban Treaty. Dominica submitted its initial Mine Ban Treaty Article 7 report in 2002 and its fifth report in 2008, but has not provided annual updates since.

Dominica did not attend any Mine Ban Treaty meetings in 2011 or the first half of 2012.

Dominica is not a party to the Convention on Conventional Weapons.
