Mine Ban Policy

Last updated: 12 November 2019


The Principality of Andorra signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997 and ratified it on 29 June 1998, becoming a State Party on 1 March 1999. Andorra believes that existing legislation is sufficient to enforce the antipersonnel mine prohibition domestically.

Andorra submitted annual Mine Ban Treaty Article 7 reports through 2017 but has since failed to submit them.

Andorra last attended a meeting of the treaty in 2013 when it attended the Thirteenth Meeting of States Parties in December 2013. However, it did not provide a statement at the meeting. Andorra voted in favor of UN General Assembly Resolution 73/61 in December 2019 promoting implementation of the convention, as it has done is previous years.[1]

Andorra is not party to the Convention on Conventional Weapons. It is party to the Convention on Cluster Munitions.

Production, transfer, use, stockpile destruction, and retention

Andorra has never used, produced, imported, exported, or stockpiled antipersonnel mines, including for training purposes.
