Company Register 100% 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

How open is the data?

Would be nice to populate this form with data from last year, and make changes in stead of re-filling the whole form.

Your submission is valid. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index. Data, collected by the Brønnøysund Register Centre ("Brønnøysundregistrene", or "Registerenheten i Brønnøysund"), are available online for free on the Open Data portal via the Brønnøysund Register Centre - Company Register and the Agency for Public Management and eGovernment. Data can be downloaded in bulk and are updated daily (with some exceptions). Query to API at gives real-time lookup.
