|A1. List of Country Codes for purposes of
Reporting on the TIC Forms
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.”

"FOREIGN OFFICIAL INSTITUTIONS (FOI) include the following:
The attached list does not purport to be exhaustive; it only includes the major foreign official institutions which have come to the attention of the Federal Reserve Banks and the Department of the Treasury. For any questions on whether an institution is considered a "Foreign Official Institution" for TIC reporting purposes, please contact your Federal Reserve Bank analyst.
It should be noted that the list does not in every case include all alternative names applying to the same institution. For example, the list does not include all the administrative departments of the foreign central governments nor all special or sub‑accounts of foreign official institutions, although all are to be treated as official. In cases in which legations have been changed to embassies, the embassy is shown on the list; reporting institutions continuing to hold an account in the name of the legation, however, should consider it as official.
These instructions are also pertinent to international and regional organizations that are included in the definition of foreign official institutions.
