    Purpose
    "These basic investigative standards (“BISs”) identify the minimum standards that a first responder to a suspected crime, which may amount to an international crime, should adhere to in collecting, handling and preserving information in order to facilitate the subsequent work of professional investigators and prosecutors. The BISs are aimed at non-lawyers and non-professional investigators, including those who work for non-governmental organisations (“NGOs”), attempting to collect, handle and preserve information concerning international humanitarian or criminal law violations. As well as being intended to optimise practical cooperation with the International Criminal Court (“ICC”) Prosecutor, they are designed to achieve the most effective and robust foundation for any subsequent investigation and adjudication at the domestic or international level."

It further obtains standards for the collection, handling and preservation of information/evidence.
