Barbados signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997, ratified on 26 January 1999 and the treaty entered into force on 1 July 1999. It is not believed to have enacted domestic implementation legislation. On 12 July 2001, Barbados informed Landmine Monitor that it had just submitted its first Article 7 report to the United Nations (due 27 December 1999).[1] It voted in support of UN General Assembly Resolution 55/33V. Barbados has stated that it has never produced, stockpiled, transferred, or used antipersonnel mines, and is not mine-affected.[2]
