Samoa signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997 and ratified on 23 July 1998. The treaty entered into force for Samoa on 1 March 1999. Samoa's Article 7 transparency measures report was due on 27 August 1999, but has not been submitted. Domestic implementing legislation is currently “in process.”[1] Samoa voted in support of UN General Assembly Resolution 55/33V in November 2000. Samoa’s delegate to the UN Asia-Pacific Regional Disarmament Conference in Wellington confirmed the country’s mine-free status; it has never produced, transferred stockpiled, or used antipersonnel mines.[2]
