Notes to IOC Country Codes

This code list is maintained by RNODC-FORMATS (ICES). New codes are allocated on request, and is done in consultation with NODC (USA) and ISO Country Code Table 3166. Whenever possible the ISO code is adopted.

ISO codes are updated by the RIPE Network Coordination Centre, in coordination with the ISO 3166 Maintenance Agency at DIN Berlin.

  1. IOC original code was BN, Recoded to avoid conflict with NODC code for Bonaire
  2. IOC original code was BR. NODC code BA adopted.
  3. IOC original code was 21. NODC code 76 adopted because of confusion with NODC code for Taiwan (21).
  4. IOC original code for GDR was 96. NODC code 07 adopted giving two codes for Germany (W & E), 06 and 07.
  5. Created 090195 at request of WOCE (Heinmiller)
  6. Created 310395 at request of IOC Training Course
