Main article: ISO 3166-2

ISO 3166-2:PS is the entry for the State of Palestine in ISO 3166-2, part of the ISO 3166 standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which defines codes for the names of the principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

Currently for the State of Palestine, it claims the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, but in fact controls only about 40% of the West Bank. ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 16 governorates.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is PS, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of the State of Palestine. The second part is three letters.
