GRC Country Code

GRC Data Intelligence External has always maintained its own list of country codes. Country codes and lists from other sources have proved unsuitable for managing international name and address data - they are created with political influences and are not updated fast enough (or at all) as the world changes.

Our list is created on a pragmatic (non political) basis. Countries and territories ("entities") are included on the basis of:

This means that the list contains entities which are politically part of another country (e.g. Guadeloupe, Bonaire) and entities which have limited or no international political recognition (e.g. Kosovo, Transdniestra, Puntland) but not some of those with a wider measure of political independence (Scotland, Catalonia).

Though the list has been created without a political agenda, your use of it, and the country names in the list, may need to be used with political and cultural sensitivity. The country names are given in English according to common English use. However, these are for identification purposes only. You would not, for example, use "Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia" in a list shown in that country, nor "Falkland Islands" in Argentina, nor "Taiwan" in China. Lists need to be created with your own needs and customers in mind.
