Operational Readiness Preparation for Troop Contributing Countries in Peacekeeping Missions (Guidelines)
This document provides Troop Contributing Countries (TCCs) and aspiring TCCs with practical guidances on the minimum individual standards and the pre-deployment training required to meet operational readiness expectations before deployment in peacekeeping missions. The Operational Readiness Assurance and Performance Improvement Policy (December 2015) requests TCCs to certify their units’ operational readiness before they deploy in peacekeeping missions. The certification applies to the operational preparation and the conduct and discipline. In terms of operational preparation, it is specified that units should be prepared to fulfil their tasks under the provisions of the Mission-specific Concept of Operations, Rules of Engagement and Operations Order. Units should also have delivered the United Nations pre-deployment training and been tested through self-evaluation and field exercises. The present guidelines focus on the operational preparation and provide TCCs with specific UN standards for the preparation of individual soldiers as well as for the delivery of pre-deployment training. The guidelines do not cover conduct and discipline and human rights screening procedures aspects, specified in the United Nations Policy on Human Rights Screening of United Nations Personnel and other UN documents.
