Company Register 70% open


What data is expected?

List of registered (limited liability) companies. The submissions in this data category do not need to include detailed financial data such as balance sheet, etc. Open data from company registers may be used for many ends: e.g. enabling customers and businesses to see with whom they deal, or to see where a company has registered offices. This definition draws on the work of OpenCorporates.

  • Name of company
  • Company address
  • Unique identifier of the company
  • Register available for entire country

Your submission is valid. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index. The National Statistical Directory of Economic Units (DENUE) offers company data online, free of charge in .CSV format. However, data are divided according to State and cannot be downloaded at once. The dataset includes ID number, company name, and address: A Trademark search is also available online free of charge by MARCANET, the External Consultation Service on Trademark Information, in which the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property makes available to users of the Industrial Property System an electronic tool, so that they can consult in real time, free of charge the records of brands, notices and commercial names with which the Divisional Directorate of Marks counts. However, data are behind a search mask so one needs to know the name of a company/brand in order to find it, and include type of request, brand type, case file, registry number, denomination, class, and logo. The address is provided after clicking on the "case file" number: It might be worth noting that the Secreteria de Economia website offers a search feature to locate establishments by setting your own criteria. For instance, one can select nothing but the "State" and the results will include all entities from that area. Business name, Address, State Municipality, supply Demand, Phone/email, and Employees Range are given, however no unique identifiers are provided even after selecting an entity's name to view details: I have taken into consideration the request by the submitter from civil society and the responsible of the open data initiative in Mexico to include the availability of 'Register available for entire country' and that the data is downloadable at once. Indeed, company data are available for free online on the Mexican government website, they are available for the entire country, and can be downloaded in bulk in .CSV format, however they do not include Company Address and Unique Identifiers. More specifically, Registration of Companies is provided by the Service of Administration and Disposal of Assets (SAE), a Decentralized Agency of the Federal Public Administration with legal personality and own assets, grouped in the sector coordinated by the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP). Information includes Company Name, Short Name, Status, Transfer Organisation, Current Status, Validity, Last Process, and Current Stage: Similarly, a Register of Institutions and Companies of Science and Technology dataset is available which includes Name of Institution or Company, Sector, and Federal Entity. I have been unable to find a source that meets all four required characteristics and can be downloaded in bulk.
