STATES PARTIES AND SIGNATORIES

Giant mural designed by Serval, Jazi and Jag on the occasion of the Seventh Meeting of States parties, September 2006 (fragment)


Pursuant to its Article 15, the Convention was opened for signature at Ottawa, Canada, by all States from 3 December 1997 until 4 December 1997, and at the United Nations Headquarters in New York from 5 December 1997 until its entry into force on 1 March 1999.

The Convention is subject to ratification, acceptance or approval of the Signatories, as well as to accession by any State which has not signed it. This means that the State shall formally declare its consent to be bound by the Convention in accordance with its constitutional arrangements for adherence to an international agreement. These constitutional arrangements generally require domestic action by the national parliament. Once the domestic requirements have been completed, the State concerned shall deposit the instrument of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession with the Secretary-General of the United Nations, in his capacity as the Convention’s depositary, thus indicating adherence to the Convention (Article 16).

The Convention is signed by 133 States. 161 States have formally agreed to be bound by the Convention.
