ISO 3166-2:PE

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

ISO 3166-2:PE is the entry for Peru 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 Peru, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 25 regions and 1 municipality. The Metropolitan Municipality of Lima contains the capital of the country Lima and has special status equal to the regions.

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