About ICRC

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) works worldwide to provide humanitarian assistance to people affected by conflict and armed violence. We take action in response to emergencies and at the same time promote respect for international humanitarian law. We are an independent and neutral organization, and our mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949. We work closely with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and with their International Federation in order to ensure a concerted, rational and rapid humanitarian response to the needs of the victims of armed conflict or any other situation of internal violence. We direct and coordinate the international activities conducted in these situations.

ICRC is one of few organizations with the capacity to deliver all the activities around EODs, from clearance to mine risk education, while most groups/companies only specialize in one or two of these. Which means that the EOD specialist is really the "point de référence" within delegations when it comes to assessing weapons and the risk they represent. It's one big responsibility of the EOD specialist to be in charge of the security and safety of the ICRC staff and to interact with the community.
