Sunday 1 August 2010 saw the entry into force of the Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM). The activation of the CCM was triggered by the deposition of the 30th instrument of ratification exactly six months earlier. By the end of March 2010, 30 states had ratified the CCM. On 1 August, the number climbed to 37 states, with 107 states having signed the CCM. To date, there are 43 ratifications and 108 signatories to this convention.
