Since the Convention entered into force in August 2010, it is no longer open for signature and states can no longer sign and then ratify. States must now become bound through the process of “accession” which has the same effect as ratification. For all states that subsequently accede to or ratify the Convention, it enters into force on the first day of the sixth month after their ratification or accession.

The CMC urges as many states as possible to accede to or ratify the convention and promote its norms.

The above map shows States Parties, signatories, and non-signatories to the convention. The map also shows countries with cluster munition stockpiles and casualties.
