Mine Ban Policy

Last updated: 19 November 2012

Barbados signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997 and ratified it on 26 January 1999, becoming a State Party on 1 July 1999. Barbados has never used, produced, imported, exported, or stockpiled antipersonnel mines, including for training purposes. Barbados has not enacted new legislation specifically to implement the Mine Ban Treaty. Barbados submitted its initial Mine Ban Treaty Article 7 report on 12 May 2003, but has not provided subsequent annual reports.

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

Barbados is not party to the Convention on Conventional Weapons.
