   It would also seem to indicate that any registration of EUR has not
   been made to the maintenance agency for ISO 4127. What registration
   has been made and with who? I have yet to be told that, despite
   variou queries. I'd be glad to see EUR as the three-letter code for
   the Euro, but as far as I can see, this is an assumption rather than
   an ISO registration.

   I hope that somebody can tell me different, with appropriate chapter
   and verse.

A footnote in
claims this:

   4 The currency code "EUR" was allocated to the single currency by
   the ISO 4217 Maintenance Agency responsible for currency codes on
   21 April 1997.
