In 2003, UNHCR published the Procedural Standards for RSD under UNHCR’s Mandate (RSD Procedural Standards) which set out core standards and best practices to ensure harmonised, efficient and quality UNHCR RSD procedures, including procedures for reception and registration.
The full text of the RSD Procedural Standards can be found at: Procedural Standards for Refugee Status Determination Under UNHCR's Mandate UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), 20 November 2003
We are revising the RSD Procedural Standards chapter by chapter. All revised sections of the RSD Procedural Standards issued on this website supersede existing guidance in the 2003 RSD Procedural Standards. Existing chapters remain valid until updates are published on this website.
We welcome further feedback on the addition or revisions to the RSD Procedural Standards until such time as the revision of the entirety of the RSD Procedural Standards is complete. Interested parties are invited to send substantive comments in MS Word to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that this email address is only for comments on the UNHCR RSD Procedural Standards revised chapters, which we will carefully consider. Should your query relate any other matter please do not write to this mailbox.
