ISO 3166-2:SC

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

ISO 3166-2:SC is the entry for Seychelles 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 Seychelles, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 27 districts. The Outer Islands, which are not part of any district, are not listed.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is SC, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Seychelles. The second part is two digits:

  • 01–23: districts created in 1979
  • 24–25: districts created in 1998
  • 26–27: districts created in 2020

The codes for each group of districts are assigned in French alphabetical order, except Au Cap, whose code is assigned based on its former name, Anse Louis.
