Mine Ban Policy

Last updated: 18 December 2019


The Commonwealth of Dominica signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997 and ratified it on 26 March 1999, becoming a State Party on 1 September 1999. Dominica has not enacted new legislation specifically to implement the Mine Ban Treaty.

Dominica has not attended any recent meetings of the treaty. It did not attend the Third Review Conference in Maputo in June 2014. Dominica submitted its initial Mine Ban Treaty Article 7 report in 2002 and its fifth report in 2008, but has not provided annual updates since.

Dominica is not  party to the Convention on Conventional Weapons, nor is it party to the Convention on Cluster Munitions.

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