The Commonwealth of the Bahamas signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997 and ratified it on 31 July 1998, becoming a State Party on 1 March 1999. The Bahamas has never used, produced, imported, exported, or stockpiled antipersonnel mines, including for training purposes. The Bahamas has not enacted new legislation specifically to implement the Mine Ban Treaty. The Bahamas last submitted a Mine Ban Treaty Article 7 report in 2009.

The Bahamas did not attend any Mine Ban Treaty meetings in 2011 or the first half of 2012.

The Bahamas is not party to the Convention on Conventional Weapons.
