The French overseas collectivities (French: collectivités d'outre-mer or COM), like the French regions are first-order administrative divisions of France. The COMs include some former French overseas territories and other French overseas entities with a particular status, all of which became COMs by constitutional reform on 28 March 2003.

As of 31 March 2011, there were five COMs:

Mayotte was a COM from 1976 until 2011, when it became a DOM.[1]
