I have noticed the usage of Prefix -list differs from one protocol to another.
for instance in BGP, they use:
Neighbor x.x.x.x Prefix-list <name of the Prefix-list>

with  other protocols such as EIGRP, they use

Distribute-list  Prefix-list <name of the Prefix-list>

is that correct ?

Thank you

The way you call the prefix-list in BGP and other IGP protocols is different.

with BGP you call it after the Neighbor x.x.x.x command
with other protocols you call it using Distribute-List command
