New country of origin for European country" CE" Urgent



I have to add country of origin code "CE" (Communauté Européenne) for the European community. From beginning of July it is no longer allowed to use "EG" (Europäische Gemeinschaft)

or "EC"(European Community) as short terms for foreign trade export. These both ISO-Alpha Codes belongs to EG = Egypt and EC = Ecuador.

For materials which are produced in Europe but the country is not defined, we have to use "CE" in the future. The printed text must be:

- In German: Europäische Gemeinschaft

- In English: European Community

- Swedish: Europeiska gemenskapen

- Finnish: ???

In material master in foreign trade export view in country of origin I have to add CE as the European community, but I am not able to understand how can I have a European community code CE for all the european countries as CE is not representing a single country.

Please provide some useful input
