Equatorial Guinea acceded to the Convention on 16 September 1998, with the Convention entering into force for Equatorial Guinea on 1 March 1999.
Obligations under the Convention
Equatorial Guinea does not retain mines for permited purposes under Article 3.
In its initial transparency report submitted in 2014, Equatorial Guinea reported that it had no stockpiled anti-personnel mines under its ownership or possession.
Equatorial Guinea has not reported any areas under its jurisdiction or control in which anti-personnel mines are known or suspected to be emplaced.
Annually and no later than 30 April, each State Party is to update information covering the previous calendar year. The latest Article 7 reports for this State Party can be found on this page.
Article 9 of the Convention states that “each State Party shall take all appropriate legal, administrative and other measures, including the imposition of penal sanctions, to prevent and suppress any activity prohibited to a State Party under this Convention undertaken by persons or on territory under its jurisdiction or control.”
Equatorial Guinea is still required to report on established national implementation measures or whether it considers existing legislation to be sufficient.
Equatorial Guinea submits its first report to the Mine Ban Convention overcoming persistent compliance concern
Equatorial Guinea submitted its initial transparency report as required by the Convention thereby addressing a compliance issue spanning almost a decade and a half. With Equatorial Guinea having submitted its initial report, only one State Party remains non-compliant with its initial transparency reporting obligation.
