Jamaica signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997, ratified on 17 July 1998 and the treaty entered into force on 1 March 1999. It is not believed to have enacted domestic implementing legislation. Jamaica submitted its initial Article 7 transparency report on 20 June 2000, covering the period from September 1999 to September 2000, but has not yet submitted its subsequent annual Article 7 report, due on 30 April 2001. Jamaica attended the Second Meeting of States Parties in September 2000 and voted in favor of UN General Assembly Resolution 55/33V, in support of the Mine Ban Treaty. Jamaica has never produced, stockpiled, transferred, or used antipersonnel mines and is not mine-affected.[1]
