Iso 3166-2:sb

Main article: ISO 3166-2

ISO 3166-2:SB is the entry for the Solomon Islands 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 the Solomon Islands, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 1 capital territory and 9 provinces. The capital of the country Honiara forms the Capital Territory and has special status equal to the provinces.

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

Current codes

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