From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

ISO 3166-2:NO is the entry 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 of Norway (whose ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code is NO).

Currently 19 counties and 2 territories (i.e., Jan Mayen and Svalbard, which are separated from metropolitan Norway) are assigned codes. Each code starts with NO-, followed by two digits, which is the official number of the county used in Norway, whose assignment is based on the following:

  • 01–20 (except 13): counties, ordered following the coastline from the Swedish border in the southeast to the Russian border in the northeast (Bergen, whose official number was 13, was merged into Hordaland in 1972)
  • 21 and 22: Svalbard and Jan Mayen

Collectively Svalbard and Jan Mayen is also assigned its own country codes in ISO 3166-1 (alpha-2 code SJ).
