DVI guide

The DVI guide, updated in 2009, provides guidelines for use by INTERPOL member countries in the identification of victims of disasters. It outlines how to set up a DVI team and how to manage DVI operations.

It is designed to encourage the compatibility of procedures across international boundaries.

The recommendations cannot address every possible eventuality but they give sound practical advice on major issues of victim identification, underlining the importance of pre-planning and training.
