ISO 3166-2:CF

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

ISO 3166-2:CF is the entry for the Central African Republic 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 Central African Republic, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 1 commune, 14 prefectures, and 2 economic prefectures. The commune Bangui is the capital of the country and has special status equal to the prefectures and economic prefectures.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is CF, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of the Central African Republic. The second part is either of the following:

  • two letters: prefectures and economic prefectures
  • three letters: commune
