ISO 3166-2:SS

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

ISO 3166-2:SS is the entry for South Sudan 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 South Sudan, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 10 states.

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

Current codes[edit]

Subdivision names are listed as in the ISO 3166-2 standard published by the ISO 3166 Maintenance Agency (ISO 3166/MA). The administrative areas of Pibor and Ruweng, as well as the currently disputed region of Abyei, do not currently have a corresponding code, and thus are not listed.
