The Bahamas signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997, ratified on 31 July 1998 and the treaty entered into force on 1 March 1999. It is not believed to have enacted domestic implementation legislation and has not yet submitted its initial Article 7 transparency report, due 27 August 1999. The Bahamas voted in support of UN General Assembly Resolution 55/33V. It has never produced, stockpiled, transferred or used antipersonnel mines and is not mine-affected.[1]
