Iso 3166-2:sc

Main article: ISO 3166-2

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 25 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

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

Current codes

Subdivision names are listed as in the ISO 3166-2 standard published by the ISO 3166 Maintenance Agency (ISO 3166/MA).
