The P0.0 Department is responsible for the Protocol Directorate’s internal secretariat and coordinates relations not only between the Directorate and the other general or support directorates within FPS Foreign Affairs, but also between FPS Foreign Affairs as a whole and other public or private bodies.

The Department manages administrative and logistical tasks in relation to Protocol, such as accounting,  human resources, the need for IT facilities, internal and external communication, the management of Protocol databases, the production of special identity cards and so on.

The Department also makes sure incoming and outgoing mail is received, registered and sent as appropriate and welcomes visitors to Protocol and Egmont Palace.
