The role of forensic pathologist in mass disaster is to identify the dead victims. Identification procedure refers to the DVI (Disaster Victim Identification) Interpol guideline. DVI process consists of 5 phases, The Scene, Post Mortem Examination, Ante Mortem Information Retrieval, Reconciliation and Debriefing. Post Mortem (PM) and Ante Mortem (AM) data that are collected include finger prints, dental records and DNA as Primary Identifiers and also medical records and property as a Secondary Identifiers. AM data populated into the yellow form and PM data into a pink form. In the reconciliation phase, someone stated identified, by comparing the AM and PM data. At least there is a match between one Primary Identifiers or two Secondary identifiers. Theoretically, the five phase of DVI should be done according to DVI standard in every case of disaster. In fact, many obstacles and constraints are met in the field to implement the DVI guidelines. A lot of corpses, limited number of storages, pathologist and time, family authority, as well as lack of coordination, rise many problems in implementing DVI procedures consistently. This article will discuss the various constraints and problems that encounters when carrying out DVI guidelines in the case of RIMBA III ship sinking, Hercules plane crash at Magetan and Earthquakes at Padang.
