Foreword
We present to you the new UNHCR Core Relief Items Catalogue

The provision of material assistance to refugees, IDPs and persons of concern is fundamental to UNHCR’s mandate

The organization continuously works to develop and improve the products provided to populations of concern and
to ensure that the delivery of assistance is effective and timely

Product development and innovation are an important element of UNHCR’s work and are carried out in close
partnership with other UN agencies, international organizations, such as the International Organization for Migration
(IOM), the International Movement of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, Non-Governmental Organizations, as well
as the private sector. New or improved products have resulted from this close cooperation. These include the most
widely used relief items: the Plastic Tarpaulin Sheet, UNHCR developed with MSF in the 1980s; the Semi-Collapsible
Jerry Can, developed by UNHCR during the “Rwanda emergency” in 1995; the Light Weight Emergency Tent
developed in 2005 by UNHCR in cooperation with IFRC and MSF. In 2009, cooperation between the International
Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the International Committee of the Red Cross, (ICRC),
UNHCR and the private sector, resulted in the Family Tent made of light weight materials that are resistant and able
to withstand severe weather conditions

To improve the acquisition and effective delivery of relief items, UNHCR designed the Core Relief Items Catalogue

Recognizing the important role that manufacturers and suppliers play in the effective delivery of essential non-food
items, the catalogue is intended as a user-friendly tool to facilitate communications with manufacturers and suppliers
of non-food items, supporting UNHCR’s sourcing, procurement and quality-assurance processes

The catalogue’s target audience includes both internal and external users involved in planning and delivering
humanitarian assistance to persons of concern affected by emergencies, both man-made and natural disasters

Among the intended users of this tool, beyond UNHCR staff, are therefore a wide range of partner organizations,
such as other UN agencies, donors, national governments, manufacturers, and implementing partners

The catalogue includes the specifications and quality requirements for 13 standard life-sustaining items such as
plastic tarpaulins, family tents, fleece blankets, sleeping mats, kitchen sets, jerry cans and buckets. UNHCR has
established international Frame Agreements with a number of manufacturers around the world to secure an effective
supply of these core items. Moreover, the organization maintains a stock of these materials in its central emergency
stockpiles in Dubai and Copenhagen to ensure their immediate delivery in emergency situations. UNHCR also has
regional stocks in Accra, Republic of Ghana and in Isaka, Tanzania

UNHCR’s Core Relief Items Catalogue will be a useful tool for UNHCR operations and the humanitarian community
as they endeavor to ensure the timely delivery of the highest quality of assistance to persons of concern worldwide

The UNHCR Core Relief Items Catalogue is available electronically on the internet (www.unhcr.org/supply/nfi) as
well as on CD, and in hard copy format

Introduction to the UNHCR Core Relief Items Catalogue
The catalogue includes the technical specifications of the relief items most widely used in UNHCR operations around the world
to satisfy specific needs of the refugees, IDPs and other people of concern to the organization. It aims to assist managers in

of the products to manufacturers and suppliers

For each of the Core Relief products, the catalogue defines the functional specifications, which are the basic characteristics
of the products. The catalogue includes information about the performance requirements of the products, performance
specifications, and sets out the technical and physical characteristics of the products
