Bolivia

Mine Ban Policy

Last updated: 27 October 2011

The Republic of Bolivia signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997 and ratified it on 9 June 1998, becoming a State Party on 1 March 1999. Bolivia has never used, produced, imported, exported, or stockpiled antipersonnel mines, including for training purposes. Legislation to enforce the antipersonnel mine prohibition domestically has not yet been enacted. Bolivia submitted its third Mine Ban Treaty Article 7 report on 9 May 2006, but has not reported on activities since.

Bolivia did not attend the Tenth Meeting of States Parties in November–December 2010, but in June 2011 Bolivia took part in the Mine Ban Treaty intersessional Standing Committee meetings in Geneva.

Bolivia is party to the Convention on Conventional Weapons (CCW) and its Amended Protocol II on landmines, but not CCW Protocol V on explosive remnants of war.
