7th Anniversary of the Convention’s entry into force

The Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM) prohibits all use, stockpiling, production and transfer of Cluster Munitions. The CCM was adopted in Dublin on 30 May 2008 and became binding international law when it entered into force on 1 August 2010 after 30 States had ratified it.

Since its entry into force, the Convention has made important progress notably through increasing adherence with the Convention; reinforcing the norms being established by the Convention and; completing operative obligations by States Parties.

To date 119 states have committed to the goals of the Convention, of which 102 have become full States Parties and 17 are signatories. As set out in the Dubrovnik Action Plan, the aim is to reach 130 States Parties by the Second Review Conference in 2020.
