Corps diplomatique (CD)
Recognized, especially through the privileges and immunities conferred by international customary law and by T-XT6106 - Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of 18 Apr 1961 (in force since 24 Apr 1964), as the body of diplomatic officers accredited to governments, to intergovernmental organizations, or to quasi-governmental institutions such as the Holy See or the Sovereign Military Order of Malta. Not a formal organization with elected officers and decision-making structures, despite acceptance of the role of Dean or Doyen and the meetings of its members. One interpretation limits the term to all diplomats accredited to one ('receiving') government, another applies it to all diplomats accredited by one ('sending') government.
