ISO 15924 Registration Authority

Welcome to the official site of the ISO 15924 Registration Authority (ISO 15924/RA).

ISO has appointed the Unicode Consortium as the Registration Authority for International Standard, Codes for the representation of names of scripts. Markus Scherer has been appointed Registrar by the Registration Authority.

The ISO 15924/RA receives and reviews applications for requesting new script codes and for the change of existing ones according to criteria indicated in the standard. It maintains an accurate list of information associated with registered script codes, processes updates of registered script codes, and distributes them on a regular basis to subscribers and other parties.

Additions and changes to approved script codes since the publication of ISO 15924:2004 appear in the script code lists and are also documented in the ISO 15924 Notice of Changes.
