ISO 3166-2:BB

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

ISO 3166-2:BB is the entry for Barbados 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 Barbados, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 11 parishes.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is BB, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Barbados. The second part is two digits (01–11).

Current codes[edit]

Subdivision names are listed as in the ISO 3166-2 standard published by the ISO 3166 Maintenance Agency (ISO 3166/MA).
