NOTE1: The designation of each country/member federation (MF) in ICCF is in accordance with the 3-letter code system used by FIDE. Except of few cases, FIDE codes are in common with the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Several of the IOC codes are different from the standard ISO 3166-1 alpha-3 codes.

NOTE2: Several historical NOCs (National Olympic Committees) or teams have codes that are still used in the IOC results database to refer to past medal winners from these teams. For example:

Code Country Last year of use
FRG West Germany 1988
GDR East Germany 1988
SCG Serbia and Montenegro 2006
TCH Czechoslovakia 1992
URS Soviet Union 1988
YUG Yugoslavia 2002
