Sao Tome e Principe

Last Updated: 28 October 2011

Mine Ban Policy

The Democratic Republic of São Tomé e Príncipe signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 30 April 1998 and ratified it on 31 March 2003, becoming a State Party on 1 September 2003. São Tomé e Príncipe has never used, produced, exported, or imported antipersonnel mines, including for training purposes. It has not enacted new legislation specifically to implement the Mine Ban Treaty. On 13 December 2007, São Tomé e Príncipe submitted its initial Mine Ban Treaty Article 7 transparency report, due 24 February 2004, but has not submitted subsequent reports.

São Tomé e Príncipe did not attend any Mine Ban Treaty meetings in 2010 or the first half of 2011.

São Tomé e Príncipe is not party to the Convention on Conventional Weapons.
