For its first mission ever, the European Gendarmerie Force was engaged in Bosnia-Herzegovina from 22 November 2007 until 28 October 2010. In accordance with the European Union Force (EUFOR) framework, EUROGENDFOR took over and manned an Integrated Police Unit (IPU) headquarters.

Set up with national contributions, but under EUROGENDFOR leadership and management, the IPU was designed to support the implementation of the General Framework Agreement for Peace. For a period of almost three years, the EUROGENDFOR IPU provided a significant contribution to establish a Safe And Secure Environment (SASE) in Bosnia Herzegovina.

EUFOR Althea can consequently be considered a milestone in EUROGENDFOR's history, and a first demonstration of EUROGENDFOR's credibility in crisis management operations.
