The new collection provides the most recent official country codes used by millions of operations worldwide in the exchange of goods and information. You can now get the latest list of country codes and/or subdivisions, not to mention formerly used codes, in one convenient location on the Online Browsing Platform (OBP).

An online collection provides you with the complete list of the latest codes from all three parts of ISO 3166 in three formats: XML, CSV and XLS. When you buy an online collection, you pay for a yearly subscription to the codes which are available to download from your library on the OBP. As an added bonus, the one-year subscription includes notification of any updates.

The country codes are the latest collection made available through the Online Browsing Platform (OBP), which already contains the quality management, environmental management, food safety management and IT security families of standards.
