DOS/2020.10 Boards of Inquiry (BOI) (SOP)
This Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) describes what Boards of Inquiry (BOI) are, when and how they shall be convened, what their purpose is and according to which modalities they shall perform their tasks. This SOP further confirms responsibilities for investigations of serious incidents. This SOP establishes the range of occurrences and serious incidents affecting United Nations peace operations, their personnel and their assets, which must be reviewed for their underlying causes and administrative as well as operational implications and reported to the Under-Secretary-General for Operational Support (USG, DOS). This SOP supersedes and replaces the Policy Directive of 2008 and SOP on BOI of 2016 and all earlier guidance and instructions on BOI that have been issued by circular, facsimile, cable or other methods of communication.
