ISO 3166-1 Alpha-2 - Current Codes - Reserved Code Elements - Indeterminate Reservations

Indeterminate Reservations

Indeterminately reserved code elements are codes used to designate road vehicles under the 1949 and 1968 United Nations Conventions on Road Traffic but differing from those contained in ISO 3166-1. These code elements are expected eventually to be either eliminated or replaced by code elements within ISO 3166-1. In the meantime, the ISO 3166/MA has reserved such code elements for an indeterminate period. Any use beyond the application of the two Conventions is discouraged and will not be approved by the ISO 3166/MA. Moreover, these codes may be reassigned by the ISO 3166/MA at any time. The following alpha-2 codes are currently indeterminately reserved:

Code Area name or country name Notes
DY Benin
EW Estonia
FL Liechtenstein
JA Jamaica
LF Libya Fezzan
PI Philippines
RA Argentina
RB Bolivia
RB Botswana
RC China
RH Haiti
RI Indonesia
RL Lebanon
RM Madagascar
RN Niger
RP Philippines
WG Grenada

Famous quotes containing the word reservations:

    Most people, no doubt, when they espouse human rights, make their own mental reservations about the proper application of the word “human.”
    Suzanne Lafollette (1893–1983)
