Iso 3166-2:lb

ISO 3166-2:LB 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 Lebanon, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 8 governorates. Aakkâr Governorate (which will contain the current Aakkâr District) and Baalbek-Hermel Governorate (which will contain the current Baalbek District and Hermel District), which are listed, have yet to be created after having been approved for creation in 2003.

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