IGO datasets - which codes to use?

When creating archives for IGOs datasets,  we have realized we were to add a code to the datasets (notably to identify the zip file). There might be some thinking to be done around this (How do we determine the codes to be used? Etc.)

    I think in this case the code would only be for your use and to facilitate your work. You should define a syntax which guarantees that there is no risk of having the same code as an OECD dataset.

    Otherwise, you choose the code you prefer to recognize the dataset.

    I do not think this needs a development on our side, just a decision you take and you can let us know

    In addition, when we have added a code to the IGO dataset, should it then be removed after the archive has been added or should we leave it in place?

    Once it is there, the code should remain, so if you need to reload the archive you will know which code it is

    As there is nothing to implement on our side, I will select "will not implement"
