Lists of countries and regions and their annual changes

The country classification is based on the Commission Regulation 1470/2020 on the country classification of the statistics on the Community external trade and the trade between the Member States. With a few exceptions (XK Kosovo, XS Serbia, XC Ceuta and XL Melilla), the  classification complies with the so-called ISO alpha standard (ISO 3166) having two-letter country identifications.

From the beginning of 2021, the international trade in goods between Northern Ireland and Finland is no longer included in the international trade between Great Britain (GB) and Finland. The details of Northern Ireland are published separately with the country code XI and the details of Great Britain are still published with the country code GB.
