Company Register 30% 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 answer to question B2 was changed as on both websites provided, the data are available through a search mask, with access restricted with a captcha. All 4 required characteristics are available free of charge, however they are in .HTML format, with the option to be downloaded in .PDF, and cannot be downloaded in bulk at once. I was unable to confirm whether data on CEIDG are also available in .XML format after registration so I did not include this in the available data formats.
