Reporting security incidents occurring outside of Sweden
A security incident is any incident or involving SRC staff or assets, resulting in a situation where individuals’ physical integrity, private belongings or SRC property, or SRC’s reputation, are damaged or put at risk, leading to an impact on individuals and/or activities. Examples of security incidents are – but are not limited to – accidents, theft, medical incidents and threats. A near-miss, which is when an incident was observed or happened in an area where SRC staff are regularly present but did not have an immediate effect SRC staff or assets, should also be reported.
If you are unsure whether an event should be reported, contact the relevant Head of Regional Unit or the Security Advisor.
Security incidents must always be reported as soon as possible by phone, text message/sms or e-mail so that appropriate support can be given immediately. Who you should report to depends on who is responsible for the security management arrangements (a Movement Partner or SRC).
The Incident Reporting form on this page is to be used for reporting incidents in a country, or in transit to/from a country, where SRC has sole responsibility for security management (i.e. no formal security agreement with a Movement Partner). It should be a record of an incident that has already been immediately reported to the relevant Head of Regional Unit.
If you are in a country where SRC has a formal security management agreement with IFRC or ICRC for the area where the incident happened, you should report as soon as possible by phone, text message or email to the ICRC or IFRC security function in the country. You still need to also inform the relevant SRC Head of Regional Unit, but IFRC or ICRC’s form should be used to record the incident and sent to the ICRC or IFRC security function. A copy must also be sent to SRC.
In both of these cases, the completed form should be sent to HR Service (email@example.com). HR Service’s role is simply to ensure that the report is centrally registered, distributed to relevant functions within SRC for further follow-up, and stored.
If you are formally seconded to IFRC or ICRC, you must follow the systems for incident reporting use the IFRC or ICRC incident reporting form, as their Security functions will be primarily responsible for recording and following up on the incident.
If you are unsure about who is responsible for security management arrangements, what agreements apply, or you are otherwise unsure which form to use, contact the relevant Head of Regional Unit or the Security Advisor.
Always fill in incident report forms in English.Uppdaterad .
