The development process of this document follows the established Quality Matrix methodology set up by the European Asylum Support Office (EASO). The document has been drafted by a working group composed of EU Member States’ experts, as well as representatives of other relevant stakeholders in the field of reception and fundamental rights, including the European Commission, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Moreover, members of the EASO Consultative Forum have been consulted prior to finalisation of the guidance. The EASO Network of Reception Authorities was consulted over the guidance and it was subsequently formally adopted by the EASO Management Board.
It should also be noted that the European Commission’s proposal for a recast of the RCD (COM(2016) 465 final) of 13 July 2016 specifically refers to these operational standards and indicators.
