Lower Saxon as a group

When you read the explanation about nds on Ethnologue, it becomes clear that
the German linguistic entities that are encompassed in the nds code include
German linguistic entities that are on a same level as the Dutch recognised
languages. When you look further, nds is called "Saxon, Low" and the Dutch
languages and the German nds are part of a grouping called "Low Saxon".

My question, is there a group for Low Saxon in the ISO-639-5 and if not,
what is the best way of acquiring one?

FYI this is about a practical situation in the Wikimedia Foundation.
