Dominica, a member of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997. (See Grenada report for Statement on behalf of OECS). Dominica ratified on 26 March 1999. Dominica endorsed the Brussels declaration but did not participate in the Oslo negotiations, where its was represented by regional bodies. It voted in favor of the key 1996 and 1997 UN General Assembly pro-ban resolutions on landmines but was absent from the vote on the 1998 resolution. Dominica has never produced, stockpiled, transferred or used antipersonnel mines. It is not mine-affected.
