Iso 3166-2:ec

ISO 3166-2:EC is the entry for codes for the names of the principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

Currently for Ecuador, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 24 provinces.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is EC, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Ecuador. The second part is one or two letters, currently used in vehicle registration plates, with a few exceptions.
