ISO 3166-1

ISO 3166-1 as part of the ISO 3166 standard provides codes for the names of countries and dependent areas. It was first published in 1974 by the International Organization for Standardization and defines three different codes for each area:

  • ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 a two letter system, contains some reserved codes, has a lot of applications, obsolete codes are tracked by ISO 3166-3
  • ISO 3166-1 alpha-3 a three letter system, contains some reserved codes
  • ISO 3166-1 numeric a three digit numerical system, which is identical to that defined by the United Nations Statistical Division.

ISO 3166-1 is not the only standard for country codes.

The following is intended to be a complete ISO 3166-1 code list in alphabetical order by country name (encoding list).
