IOM data protection provisions

The collection and processing of personal data is an integral and essential part of IOM operations, as the Organization daily processes personal data of millions of beneficiaries in order to fulfill its mandate. IOM therefore attaches significant importance to data protection.

Registration of beneficiaries

Registration procedures shall be designed according to the specificities of each migrant centre and its targeted beneficiaries. A screening shall also be carried out to identify beneficiaries’ needs and vulnerability to violence, exploitation, and abuse as per IOM’s determinants of migrant vulnerability (DoMV) model.
