Which standards bodies, and according to which standards/maintenance
agencies are these allocated? I understood that ISO 3166 (which is
the source of all other currency codes) does not include the 2-letter
combination EU, and that the responsible committee (ISO/TC46/WG2,
directly under ISO/TC46) and the ISO 3166 Maintenance Agency voted
AGAINST including codes for the European Union and other
international organizations in this standard.
I whish this were not so, but it is so.
I shall be attending the UK committee which oversees this in a couple
of weeks: could you telephone me or email me to see whether anything
useful can be progressed in this area?
I look forward to hearing from you
