We present a list of 32 stellar sources selected for the in-orbit calibration/characterisation of the Relative Spectral Response Function (RSRF) of the Medium Resolution Spectrometer (MRS) of the Mid-InfraRed Instrument (MIRI) onboard the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). As these sources will be used for spectrophotometric calibration, it is of key importance that they span a wide range of spectral types. The different selection criteria used for the list compilation and the analysis steps of the obtained data are described. The first results of the source modelling are also presented.
