For France we are using the following administrative divisions :

ADM1 = régions (22)
ADM2 = départements (96)
ADM3 = Arrondissements (329)
ADM4 = Communes (not yet complete: ca 31'000 out of 36'000)

The official authority for French administrative divisions is the INSEE (Institut National de la Statistique et des Études Économiques).
