Iso 3166-2:bf

Main article: ISO 3166-2

ISO 3166-2:BF is the entry for Burkina Faso 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.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is BF, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Burkina Faso. The second part is either of the following:

  • two digits (01–13): regions
  • three letters: provinces

Current codes

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