About us
     Thailand Mine Action Center (TMAC)

The Royal Thai Government recognizes that landmines and UXO are a major obstacle to development and economic growth in rural border communities. The Royal Thai Army and Navy have been conducting demining operations in areas along the borders since 1987. In August 1998, the Office of the Prime Minister of Thailand issued an Order No. 151/1998 forming the National Mine Action Committee (NMAC), chaired by the Prime Minister and comprising all major government ministries and departments, to develop policies and to monitor the obligations set forth by the treaty, including:

1.            Implementation of the law prohibiting the use of anti-personnel landmines;

2.            Implementation of demining operations and mine risk education (MRE);

3.            Establishing the minimum quantity of anti-personnel landmines to remain in Thailand for education and demining purposes, and the destruction of all anti-personnel landmine stocks in excess of this established minimum; and

4.            Implementation of the landmine victim assistance activities.

Specific duties of NMAC include: coordination of national and international support for demining activities; dissemination of information about the threat posed by landmines and the progress made to remove that threat; and provide a safe environment to those affected by anti-personnel landmines.

The Thailand Mine Action Center (TMAC) was subsequently established by NMAC in January 2000 to function as the central coordinating agency for all landmine issues and operations in Thailand. The mission of TMAC is to coordinate, monitor and implement mine clearance, landmine / UXO survey, mine awareness and victim assistance throughout Thailand. TMAC is also responsible for establishing a programme to meet Thailandís obligations as a party to the treaty.

TMAC operates under the authority of the Royal Thai Armed Forces under the Ministry of Defence, and received Royal Patronage bestowed by the late Her Royal Highness Princess Galayani Vadhana Krom Luang Naradhiwas Rajanagarindra.
