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:

A country or territory generally gets new alpha codes if its name changes, whereas a new numeric code is associated with a change of boundaries. Some codes in each series are reserved, for various reasons.

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).
