Protocol and Liaison Service
In light of the ongoing situation presented by COVID-19, the Protocol and Liaison Service is currently operating remotely away from Headquarters. As such, the procedures for registering members of Permanent Missions and Observer Offices have been revised temporarily to allow the workflow to continue with minimal disruption. Please click here to open a list of revisions to these processes.
The Protocol and Liaison Service within the Department for General Assembly and Conference Management (DGACM) serves the protocol needs of the Secretariat, including those of the Secretary-General, the Deputy Secretary-General and the President of the General Assembly. It also interfaces with the Permanent Missions and Observer Offices to the United Nations as well as with the liaison offices of the specialised agencies and related organizations stationed in New York. The Service applies an orderly, uniform set of rules and governing codes of behaviour in diplomatic forums, meetings and ceremonies involving missions/observers and their representatives.
