A2. DESCRIPTION: This geographical classification is provided as guidance for reporting institutions in preparing reports on the Treasury International Capital (TIC) Forms.
In addition to the codes shown for countries and areas listed separately on the reporting forms themselves, codes have also been assigned to certain named places that are components of those countries and geographical categories. The latter codes, which are followed by an asterisk (*), are provided for the convenience of respondents, who may wish to adopt them for internal use.
These instructions are also pertinent to international and regional organizations that are included in the last part of the list.
The coding system has been developed for use by the Federal Reserve Banks and the Treasury in processing the TIC Forms. Reporting institutions filing their reports on magnetic tape or other media that can be processed by data processing equipment are required to use these codes.
The first four digits of the country code represent the actual code. The fifth number is a check digit calculated by the “Modulus 11 Method.”
A3. Revisions: Descriptions of all other revisions since 2001 are shown at the bottom of the "geographic version" (PDF) in part A above.
