When using the country codes to retrieve records, this practice should be specially noted as not all records encoded before 1971 may have been changed.
When a country has changed its name, the existing code is retained but the new name is used and the earlier name is added as a reference.
Thus when using country codes to retrieve records, if the code for the entity has changed since the implementation of an earlier code list, it is advisable to specify both the new and previously assigned (historical) codes in the retrieval request if records coded prior to the changes are desired.
