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

Your submission is valid. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index. The National Center of Registers website offers a list of enrolled Companies Registrations online for free, which is downloadable at once. However, the data are not up to date (latest data list is from the period of November-December 2016 and the date of last update is 20 January 2017; current date is 22/02/2017) as "the contents and services offered by the Website are updated periodically", and are not machine-readable as they are available in .PDF format. While the register is available for the entire country, the list contains only the names and registration numbers of companies, but not the addresses. Lastly, "all texts, designs, forms and any other content or information contained in the Website are owned by the Centro Nacional de Registros and no person may exploit or communicate them publicly without prior authorization granted in accordance with the provisions of the Intellectual Property Law. Violation of these rights will result in the corresponding action and the claim for compensation for damages."
