The ISO 639 Registration Authorities' Joint Advisory Committee has decided:


The identifiers mo and mol are deprecated

leaving ro and ron/rum the current language identifiers to be used for the variant of the Romanian language also known as Moldavian and Moldovan in English and moldave in French. (The identifier ron is used in the ISO 639-2 T table; the identifier rum in the ISO 639-2 B table.)


The identifiers mo and mol will not be assigned to different items, and recordings using these identifiers will not be invalid.


Best regards,

Håvard Hjulstad
