We are now using the Online Browsing Platform (OBP) to present the ISO country codes, including codes for subdivisions and formerly used codes.
The information on the OBP is always up-to-date and you can sign up for notifications to be informed when changes are made by clicking on the "follow" function in the top right hand corner of this page. This notification functionality replaces the ISO 3166 newsletter. For reference purposes you can find past newsletters on this page.
You need to have an ISO Store account in order to sign up for notifications on the OBP. If you have purchased a standard from ISO you can use this login, if not then please create an account (it is free).
Please contact our customer service team with any feedback or questions.
Subscribe to the full collection of codes
We also have a product, the Online collection of country codes, that allows you to integrate these codes into your own systems. This annual subscription service allows you to download the official lists of the codes (.XLS, .XML and .CSV format) and notifies you when changes are made so you can download the latest versions. In this way, you can be sure that your database is always using the most up-to-date information from an official and ISO-supported source.
