The IOM Logistics Emergency Catalogue contains item specifications to allow comparison between suppliers, convergence of items with other major humanitarian responders, and testing for quality control. The IOM specifications are based on the ICRC standards, and closely coordinated with other major agencies including UNHCR, UNICEF and MSF.
The specifications also enable suppliers to understand IOM's expectations in terms of items delivered. Please click here to view the latest version of the IOM’s Logistics Emergency Catalogue which is the sole source for current IOM global specifications of the most commonly procured non-food items.

These assessments looked at shelter trends, current building capacity, and identification of dangerous or inappropriate construction practices. Shelters were also assessed on their capacity to provide safe shelter in the event of a natural disaster.
