OICP- INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION OF CEREMONIAL AND PROTOCOL
The growing need of all professionals of the Protocol and Ceremonial to unify criteria and consolidate permanent meeting forums that allow the continued study of those aspects that concern in this field, as well as proposing actions aimed at the general improvement of professional techniques and promoting the research and training, made advisable in the year 2001, the worldwide constitution of the International Organization of Ceremonial and Protocol, known by the acronym OICP.
The OICP has the legal model of non-profit Association, registered in the Registry of the Kingdom of Spain and endowed with statutes that respond to its international and multinational vocation.

Personal accessions will not be accepted, except for those established by the OIP in its internal regulations as a consequence of its own honors regulations and for the functioning of its corresponding bodies.
