UNAMIC was established by Security Council resolution 717 (1991) of 16 October 1991, with the mandate to assist the four Cambodian parties to maintain their ceasefire during the period prior to the establishment and deployment of the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia (UNTAC); and to initiate mine-awareness training of civilian populations.

By its resolution 728 (1992) of 8 January 1992, the Security Council enlarged the mandate of UNAMIC to include a major training programme for Cambodians in mine-detection and mine-clearance and the mine-clearing of repatriation routes, reception centres and resettlement areas.

UNAMIC was absorbed by UNTAC in March 1992.
