ISO 3166-2:GB is the entry 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 subdivision of the United Kingdommarker (whose ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code is GB).

Currently the following subdivisions are assigned codes:

Each code starts with GB-, followed by three letters, which is the British Standard BS 6879 three-letter code of the subdivision.

The four constituent parts of the United Kingdom, i.e., England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales (referred to as either "country", "province", or "principality" in the official standard), are also assigned codes, as well as three other geopolitical terms which are included for completeness:
  • England and Wales (consisting of England and Wales)
  • Great Britainmarker (consisting of England, Scotland, and Wales)
  • United Kingdom (consisting of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales)

Each code consists of three letters, which is also taken from BS 6879.

Previously the three crown dependencies, i.e., Guernseymarker, Jerseymarker (the two territories comprising the Channel Islands), and the Isle of Manmarker, were also included as subdivisions of the United Kingdom and assigned codes in ISO 3166-2. Their ISO 3166-2 codes were deleted (Newsletter I-8) after they were officially assigned their own country codes in ISO 3166-1 in 2006 (alpha-2 codes GG, JE, and IM respectively).

Current codes

Codes and subdivision names are listed as in the official standard published by the ISO 3166 Maintenance Agency (ISO 3166/MA). Click on the button in the header to sort each column.

Country, province, principality

These codes are defined in the official standard without the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of the country as prefix, and thus do not guarantee uniqueness in a global context by themselves. They can be completed by adding GB-.
