  No further changes have been made to 3166-IV.

  The fifth edition will consist of three parts: 3166-1 country codes / DIS

  published April 96 / IS expected summer|fall 97 "The list of country names

  remains basically unchanged." 3166-2 country subdivision code / DIS published

  November 1996 3166-3 Code for formerly used names of countries / DIS expected

  spring 97

  Quote: We are delighted to notice that the acceptance of ISO3166 among users

  of country codes is growing. However, the use of ISO3166 e.g. in the Internet

  confronts ISO3166/MA with formerly unknown problems. One among these problems

  is that more and more "non-country-entities" as e.g. organisations, interest

  groups or groupings of countries request ISO3166 code elements. The scope of

  the standard does not allow for allocation of code elements to such "groups".
