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

characteristics

Company data are collected by the Registro Público de Panamá / Public Registry of Panama. As mentioned by the original submitter, Victor Díaz Navarro, there are also two unofficial sources available: http://www.panadata.net/sociedades and http://www.panadata.net/personas All three sources require registration. According to the submitter, all four characteristics are available online free of charge on the Public Registry of Panama website, however the dataset is not downloadable at once and one can only print and see the scanned document on .PDF format inside their platform. Again, according to the submitter, the data are up-to-date, though not openly licensed/in public domain. The submitter found the data by researching on the web for national registry, then entering the query platform, logging in and entering a captcha code, and searching by different criterias. In order to verify the submission, I too registered on the Public Registry website (https://registro-publico.gob.pa/index.php - registration is free of charge) and from the top menu selected Web Services -> Services and Registration which leads to Registry Services and Queries Interface (the link provided by the submitter): https://www.rp.gob.pa/ValidacionDigital.aspx Indeed, one needs to enter their username, password, and a captcha code in order to start a session. However, there appears to be a glitch on the page and it refuses to log in, stating that "either the username or password is not correct". Even after changing my password and using different browsers, the problem persists and it seems that there is no way for me to actually access the company data; if they are available at all. Hence, I am unable to verify that the dataset exists and have to reject the original submission.
