ISO 3166-2:NO is the entry for Norway in ISO 3166-2, part of the ISO 3166 standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which defines codes for the names of the principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

Currently, for Norway, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for the following subdivisions:

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is NO, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Norway. The second part is two digits.

Collectively Svalbard and Jan Mayen is also assigned its own country code in ISO 3166-1, with alpha-2 code SJ.
