The Info List - ISO 3166-1 Alpha-2


--- Advertisement ---



ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 codes are two-letter country codes defined in ISO 3166-1, part of the ISO 3166 standard published by the International Organization for Standardization
Standardization
(ISO), to represent countries, dependent territories, and special areas of geographical interest. They are the most widely used of the country codes published by ISO (the others being alpha-3 and numeric), and are used most prominently for the Internet's country code top-level domains (with a few exceptions).[1] They are also used as country identifiers extending the postal code when appropriate within the international postal system for paper mail, and has replaced the previous one consisting one-letter codes. They were first included as part of the ISO 3166 standard in its first edition in 1974.

Uses and applications[edit] The ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 codes are used in different environments and are also part of other standards. In some cases they are not perfectly implemented. Perfect implementations[edit] The ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 codes are used in the following standards:

Imperfect implementations[edit] Starting in 1985, ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 codes have been used in the Domain Name System
Domain Name System
as country code top-level domains (ccTLDs). The Internet
Internet
Assigned Numbers Authority currently assigns the ccTLDs mostly following the alpha-2 codes, but with a few exceptions.[9] For example, the United Kingdom, whose alpha-2 code is GB, uses .uk instead of .gb as its ccTLD, as UK is currently exceptionally reserved in ISO 3166-1 on the request of the United Kingdom. The WIPO coding standard ST.3 is based on ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 codes, but includes a number of additional codes for international intellectual property organizations, which are currently reserved and not used at the present stage in ISO 3166-1.[10] The European Commission
European Commission
generally uses ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 codes with two exceptions: EL (not GR) is used to represent Greece, and UK (not GB) is used to represent the United Kingdom.[11] This notwithstanding, the Official Journal of the European Communities specified that GR and GB be used to represent Greece
Greece
and United Kingdom
United Kingdom
respectively.[12] For VAT administration purposes, the European Commission
European Commission
uses EL and GB for Greece
Greece
and the United Kingdom
United Kingdom
respectively. The United Nations
United Nations
uses a combination of ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 and alpha-3 codes, along with codes that pre-date the creation of ISO 3166, for international vehicle registration codes, which are codes used to identify the issuing country of a vehicle registration plate; some of these codes are currently indeterminately reserved in ISO 3166-1.[13] IETF language tags (conforming to the BCP 47 standard track and maintained in an IANA registry) are also partially derived from ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 codes (for the region subtags). The full list of ISO 3166-1 codes assigned to countries and territories are usable as region subtags. Also, the "exceptionally reserved" alpha-2 codes defined in ISO 3166-1 (with the exception of UK) are also usable as region subtags for language tags. However, newer stability policies (agreed with ISO) have been implemented to avoid deleting subtags that have been withdrawn in ISO 3166-1 ; instead they are kept and aliased to the new preferred subtags, or kept as subtags grouping several countries. Some other region grouping subtags are derived from other standards. Under the newer stability policies, old assigned codes that have been withdrawn from ISO 3166-1 should no longer be reassigned to another country or territory (like it occurred in the past for "CS"). Current codes[edit] Decoding table[edit] The following is a colour-coded decoding table of all ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 codes.[14]

User-assigned code elements[edit]

User-assigned code elements are codes at the disposal of users who need to add further names of countries, territories, or other geographical entities to their in-house application of ISO 3166-1, and the ISO 3166/MA will never use these codes in the updating process of the standard. The following alpha-2 codes can be user-assigned: AA, QM to QZ, XA to XZ, and ZZ. For example:

The code QZ is being used by the World Intellectual Property Organization as an indicator for the Community Plant Variety Office. The code XN is being used by the World Intellectual Property Organization as an indicator for the Nordic Patent Institute, an international organization common to Denmark, Iceland, Norway
Norway
and Sweden.[19] The code XU is being used by the World Intellectual Property Organization as an indicator for the International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants. The code XV is being used by the World Intellectual Property Organization as an indicator for the Visegrad Patent Institute. The code XX is being used by the World Intellectual Property Organization as an indicator for unknown states, other entities or organizations. UN/LOCODE assigns XZ to represent installations in international waters.[8] The Unicode
Unicode
Common Locale Data Repository assigns QO to represent Outlying Oceania (a multi-territory region containing Antarctica, Bouvet Island, the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, Christmas Island, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, Heard Island and McDonald Islands, the British Indian Ocean Territory, the French Southern Territories, and the United States
United States
Minor Outlying Islands), and ZZ to represent "Unknown or Invalid Territory". Before the adoption of the macroregion code EU by ISO, CLDR also used QU to represent the European Union.[20] The code XK is being used by the European Commission,[21] the IMF, and SWIFT,[22] CLDR and other organizations as a temporary country code for Kosovo.[23] The code XA is being used by Switzerland,[24] as a country code for the Canary Islands, although IC is already reserved for that purpose. The codes XE, XS and XW are used by WhatsApp
WhatsApp
to represent the flags of England, Scotland and Wales as Emoji.

Furthermore, the code element OO is designated as an escape code if the number of regular user-assigned code elements is not sufficient. Reserved code elements[edit] Reserved code elements are codes which have become obsolete, or are required in order to enable a particular user application of the standard but do not qualify for inclusion in ISO 3166-1. To avoid transitional application problems and to aid users who require specific additional code elements for the functioning of their coding systems, the ISO 3166/MA, when justified, reserves these codes which it undertakes not to use for other than specified purposes during a limited or indeterminate period of time. The reserved alpha-2 codes can be divided into the following four categories: exceptional reservations, transitional reservations, indeterminate reservations, and codes currently agreed not to use. Exceptional reservations[edit] Exceptionally reserved code elements are codes reserved at the request of national ISO member bodies, governments and international organizations, which are required in order to support a particular application, as specified by the requesting body and limited to such use; any further use of such code elements is subject to approval by the ISO 3166/MA. The following alpha-2 codes are currently exceptionally reserved:

Code Area name or country name Current actual country ccTLD Notes

AC Ascension Island United Kingdom .ac Reserved on request of UPU for stamp issuing area

CP Clipperton Island France — Reserved on request of ITU for location of certain telecommunications installations

DG Diego Garcia United Kingdom — Reserved on request of ITU for location of certain telecommunications installations

EZ Eurozone multiple — Reserved on request of ISO 6166/RA for the European OTC derivatives within International securities identification numbering system (ISIN)

FX France, Metropolitan France — Reserved on request of France Officially assigned before deleted from ISO 3166-1 (now assigned ISO 3166-3 code FXFR)

United Kingdom
lest UK be used for any other country Also used by the European Commission United Kingdom

The following alpha-2 codes were previously exceptionally reserved, but are now officially assigned:

Code Area name or country name Notes

AX Åland Reserved on request of Finland

GG Guernsey Reserved on request of UPU for stamp issuing area

IM Isle of Man Reserved on request of UPU for stamp issuing area

JE Jersey Reserved on request of UPU for stamp issuing area

Transitional reservations[edit] Transitional reserved code elements are codes reserved after their deletion from ISO 3166-1. These codes may be used only during a transitional period of at least five years while new code elements that may have replaced them are taken into use. These codes may be reassigned by the ISO 3166/MA after the expiration of the transitional period. The following alpha-2 codes are currently transitionally reserved:

For each deleted alpha-2 code, an entry for the corresponding former country name is included in ISO 3166-3. Each entry is assigned a four-letter alphabetic code, where the first two letters are the deleted alpha-2 code. Indeterminate reservations[edit] Indeterminately reserved code elements are codes used to designate road vehicles under the 1949 and 1968 United Nations
United Nations
Conventions on Road Traffic but differing from those contained in ISO 3166-1. These code elements are expected eventually to be either eliminated or replaced by code elements within ISO 3166-1. In the meantime, the ISO 3166/MA has reserved such code elements for an indeterminate period. Any use beyond the application of the two Conventions is discouraged and will not be approved by the ISO 3166/MA. Moreover, these codes may be reassigned by the ISO 3166/MA at any time. The following alpha-2 codes are currently indeterminately reserved:

Codes currently agreed not to use[edit] In addition, the ISO 3166/MA will not use the following alpha-2 codes at the present stage, as they are used for international intellectual property organizations in WIPO Standard ST.3:

Code Organization name

AP African Regional Industrial Property Organization

BX Benelux Trademarks and Design Offices

EF Union of Countries under the European Community Patent Convention

EM European Trademark Office

EP European Patent Organization (Union of countries under the European Patent Convention)

EV Eurasian Patent Organization

GC Patent Office of the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (GCC)

IB International Bureau of WIPO

OA African Intellectual Property Organization

WO World Intellectual Property Organization

WIPO Standard ST.3 actually uses EA, instead of EV, to represent the Eurasian Patent Organization. However, EA was already exceptionally reserved by the ISO 3166/MA to represent Ceuta
Ceuta
and Melilla
Melilla
for customs purposes. The ISO 3166/MA proposed in 1995 that EV be used by WIPO to represent the Eurasian Patent Organization; however, this request was not honoured by WIPO. Deleted codes[edit] Besides the codes currently transitionally reserved and two other codes currently exceptionally reserved (FX for France, Metropolitan and SU for USSR), the following alpha-2 codes have also been deleted from ISO 3166-1:[26]
