ISO 3166-2 Newsletter I-8, published on 2007-04-17, has new ISO parish codes for Dominica. They are shown in the table below. They replace codes from a draft version, ISO/DIS 2166-2, which had not been supported.
International standard ISO 3166-2 was published on December 15, 1998. It superseded ISO/DIS 3166-2 (draft international standard). For Dominica, the draft standard showed ten parishes with their codes. The final standard mentions that there are ten parishes, but declines to specify names or codes. It says that these divisions are "not relevant".
At the beginning of the 20th century, Dominica was one of five presidencies of the Leeward Islands, a British colony. On 1940-01-01, it became a separate British colony. On 1958-04-22, it joined the West Indies Federation. The Federation was dissolved on 1962-05-31. Dominica became independent on 1978-11-03.

Dominica is divided into ten parishes.
The country consists of the island of Dominica. Roseau, the capital, lies in Saint George parish.
The UN LOCODE page for Dominica lists locations in the country, some of them with their latitudes and longitudes, some with their ISO 3166-2 codes for their subdivisions. This information can be put together to approximate the territorial extent of subdivisions.
