INSARAG es una red mundial de más de 90 países y organizaciones bajo la sombrilla de las Naciones Unidas. INSARAG se encarga de temas relacionados con búsqueda y rescate urbano (USAR) con el objetivo de establecer normas internacionales mínimas para los equipos USAR y una metodología para la coordinación internacional de respuesta ante terremotos. Estas normas y metodologías se basan en las Guías de INSARAG, aprobadas por la Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas en su Resolución 57/150 del 2002, sobre el "Fortalecimiento de la Eficacia y de la Coordinación de la Asistencia Internacional a las Operaciones de Búsqueda y Rescate en Zonas Urbanas".
