Mine Ban Policy

Last updated: 27 November 2011

Belize signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 27 February 1998 and ratified it on 23 April 1998, becoming a State Party on 1 March 1999. Belize has never used, produced, imported, exported, or stockpiled antipersonnel mines, including for training purposes. Legislation to enforce the antipersonnel mine prohibition domestically was enacted on 10 January 2004. Belize submitted its third Mine Ban Treaty Article 7 report on 24 March 2006, but has not submitted subsequent annual reports.

Belize did not attend any Mine Ban Treaty meetings in 2010 or the first half of 2011.

Belize is not party to the Convention on Conventional Weapons.
