  • d) ‘‘the Vienna Convention’’ means the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of 18 April 1961.

2. Privileges and immunities

  • a) The Head of the Organisation, together with members of his family forming part of his household, shall enjoy the same privileges and immunities as the host State accords to heads of diplomatic missions accredited to the host State in accordance with the Vienna Convention.

  • b) The highest ranking staff of the Organisation, together with members of their family forming part of their household, shall enjoy the same privileges and immunities as the host State accords to diplomatic agents of the diplomatic missions established in the host State in accordance with the Vienna Convention.

  • c) Administrative and technical staff of the Organisation, together with members of their family forming part of their household, shall enjoy the same privileges and immunities as the host State accords to administrative and technical staff of the diplomatic missions established in the host State in accordance with the Vienna Convention, provided that the immunity from criminal jurisdiction and personal inviolability shall not extend to acts performed outside the course of their official duties.

  • d) Service staff of the Organisation, together with members of their family forming part of their household, shall enjoy the same privileges and immunities as the host State accords to service staff of the diplomatic missions established in the host State in accordance with the Vienna Convention.
