Mine Ban Policy

The Republic of Guyana signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 4 December 1997 and ratified it on 5 August 2003, becoming a State Party on 1 February 2004. Guyana has never used or produced antipersonnel mines. Guyana has not enacted new legislation specifically to implement the Mine Ban Treaty. Guyana submitted a Mine Ban Treaty Article 7 report in 2010 covering the period from 2007 to 2009.

Guyana did not attend any Mine Ban Treaty meetings in 2010 or the first half of 2011.

Although the Monitor received information that Guyana had a stockpile, Guyana reported in 2006 that it did not have a stockpile of antipersonnel mines. It is possible that a stockpile was destroyed in an ammunition storage area explosion in 2000.

Guyana is not party to the Convention on Conventional Weapons.
