What we do

The National Mine Action Center

The National Mine Action Center is the operational body that executes the policies of the National Steering Committee for Mine Action and is the focal point for coordinating all mine action activities on the ground.

The district level activities are executed by the two Regional Mine Action Offices (RMAOs) based in Jaffna and Vavuniya. The RMAOs carry out their functions on behalf of the Government Agents, facilitate the monthly meeting of the DSCMAs, assist in the preparation of district work plans, compile mine/explosive remnants of war (ERW) clearance and survey task dossiers issued to the demining organizations, and liaise with the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) regional command to obtain security authorization for the proposed clearance tasks. Most importantly the RMAOs carry out quality management of humanitarian demining, including survey, clearance and MRE activities. The Information Management System for Mine Action (IMSMA) data bases are also updated by the RMAOs.
