Introduction

During the INSARAG Steering Group (ISG) Meeting 2018, a key decision was made for the INSARAG Guidelines Review Group (GRG) 2020, as part of its Terms of Reference (TOR) to develop the Technical Reference Library (TRL) and update the Guidance Notes.  The Technical Reference Library is a knowledge repository for best practices that have been shared by the respective national Operational Focal Point (FP) and the respective INSARAG Working Group (WG) while Guidance Notes would capture INSARAG endorsed documents which are binding, such as the guidelines annexes, IEC/IER & INAP/IRNAP Checklists and USAR Coordination Cell (UC) manual. For more information on the TRL and Guidance Notes, refer to the following link For more information on the document upload workflow and review process, refer to the following link.
