protocol (noun) rules of behavior on official occasions, especially between governments

Protocol is a system of rules of behavior on official occasions like meetings between the officials and elected representatives of two different countries. A president of one country visiting another country is to be received by a person in a similar position and status in the host country. This is an example of protocol. If this is not followed then it is a violation of protocol. A protocol is also the first or original version of agreement between two nations. A standard method for connecting computers for an exchange of information among them is also protocol.

  • The visiting dignitary was offended at the violation of protocol, as he was not given the treatment suitable for his status. He was offered a seat away from the person of similar status in the host country.
  • According to strict protocol, negotiations between two countries are carried on between officials of the same status in both the countries. It is a breach of protocol if they are not the same status.
