Obligations under the Convention
Notwithstanding the obligation to destroy all stockpiled anti-personnel mines, the Convention permits the retention of the minimum number of anti-personnel mines absolutely necessary for the development of and training in mine detection, mine clearance, or mine destruction techniques. As of 2018, Italy has reported having retained 620 anti-personnel mines for these permitted purposes.

In 2002, Italy reported that it had completed the destruction of all stockpiled anti-personnel mines.
In total, Italy reported having destroyed 7,112,811 mines.
