What is RIAT?
A truly European approach to reintegration assistance calls for a joint, unified information management system. The Reintegration Assistance Tool (RIAT) is a unique online platform that simplifies and standardises information exchange around the reintegration process to the best benefit of returnees, service partners and European counsellors.

Developed with the support of DG HOME, RIAT facilitates the management of information flow around reintegration. It provides a comprehensive overview of a case via a single communication platform, available to all authorised stakeholders. It makes the interaction between service partners and European Member States easier, ensuring that the same data is not entered and processed multiple times.
