Mine Ban Policy

The Republic of Malawi signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 4 December 1997 and ratified it on 13 August 1998, becoming a State Party on 1 March 1999. Malawi has never used, produced, imported, exported, or stockpiled antipersonnel mines. It possesses 21 inert mines used for training purposes. Malawi has drafted a Land Mine Prohibition Act to implement the Mine Ban Treaty.[1] Malawi submitted its fifth Mine Ban Treaty Article 7 transparency report on 27 May 2010 but has not submitted a subsequent annual report.

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

Malawi is not party to the Convention on Conventional Weapons.
