Trinidad and Tobago

Last Updated: 28 October 2011

Mine Ban Policy

The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 4 December 1997 and ratified it on 27 April 1998, becoming a State Party on 1 March 1999. Trinidad and Tobago has never used, produced, exported, or imported antipersonnel mines, including for training purposes. Legislation to enforce the antipersonnel mine prohibition domestically took effect on 1 June 2000. In 2011, Trinidad and Tobago submitted its fifth Mine Ban Treaty Article 7 report.

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

Trinidad and Tobago is not party to the Convention on Conventional Weapons.
