The last three digits of a GIIN are the ISO 3166 codes for that country.

There is only one correct ISO 3166 code for a unique jurisdiction – that is why the ISO codes are useful.

There appear to be some errors on the IRS list of GIINs – this might imply that the validation rules for GIIN allocation numbers are incomplete.

Australia – 2 ISO3166 codes allocated

Belarus – 2 ISO3166 codes allocated

Canada – 2 ISO3166 codes allocated

Cayman Islands – 5 ISO3166 codes allocated

Guernsey – 3 ISO3166 codes allocated

Jersey – 2 ISO3166 codes allocated


Here is an absolute howler:

Republic of Korea – 2 ISO3166 codes allocated; the second ISO3166 is also attributed to the People’s Democratic Republic of Korea


 

Luxembourg – 4 ISO3166 codes allocated

Mauritius – 2 ISO3166 codes allocated

Netherlands – 3 ISO3166 codes allocated

Panama – 2 ISO3166 codes allocated

Singapore – 2 ISO3166 codes allocated

United Kingdom – 4 ISO3166 codes allocated

British Virgin Islands – 3 ISO3166 codes allocated

  1. There is also nou Country, Kosovo, on any ISO list; however the IRS signed a IGA with them?
