In SAP standard delivery system, all countries are defined according to the international ISO standard (ISO 3166). SAP recommends that you use the ISO standard for your additional entries. Please, refer to the following SAP Notes 1164216, 204693 and 162594.

Notice that the country and the region tables (T005, T005S, T005K) are customizing tables (Class C). Entries for tables in delivery Class C have an individual, customer specific character. For this reason, during an upgrade or a language update, SAP only imports proposal entries for these tables into SAP reference client 000.
- Montenegro and Serbia:
Kosovo is not a country recognized by ISO 3166, it is a region of the country Serbia. Some SAP customers use XK as a temporary country code for this region, as if it were a country.
Yugoslavia (YU) was a country and its successor states are Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Montenegro and Macedonia. In order to avoid the use of the country code Yugoslavia in your system, do not remove the entry of country tables, but change the Description field to 'DO NOT USE' or something like this. For example, change the Yugoslavia entry to 'Yugoslavia DO NOT USE'.
Abkhazia (GE-AB) is not a country recognized by ISO 3166, it is a region of the country Georgia (GE).
- Ceuta and Melilla:
Ceuta (ES-CE) and Melilla (ES-ML) are not new countries, they are regions of the country Spain (ES).
Siberia is not a country, it is a region of the countries Russia (RU) and Kazakhstan (KZ).
