Terms of Reference Registration Roster
The DRC Registration Roster supports UNHCR’s work within registration and identity management of asylum-seekers, refugees and other persons of concern. Members of the Registration Roster are deployed to UNHCR operations globally and at short notice to assist with the important work of registration and verification of refugees and their needs.
Registration and identification of refugees and people of concern are key to knowing who has arrived, and based on this, to facilitate access to basic assistance and protection. The process of registration provides comprehensive data to identify needs within a population and to plan programmes including shelter, food and water assistance. Registration data is also an important tool in ensuring the integrity of refugee protection systems and preventing and combating fraud, corruption, and crime.
Since June 2019, DRC has supported UNHCR’s work within registration and identity management of asylum-seekers, refugees and other persons of concern by facilitating the mobilization and deployment of experts. Our experts are deployed to UNHCR operations globally, at short notice, to assist with the important work of registration and verification of refugees and their needs.

During a humanitarian response, UNHCR country operations need to quickly augment their human resources on the ground. Requesting experts through their standby partners is one mechanism that complements their own internal surge capacities.
Procedures for requesting deployments from the Registration Roster are based on the conditions made in the individual grant agreements, hence all needs and requests should be made through the respective focal points at UNHCR Copenhagen.
