THE EBR NETWORK: WHAT IT IS



Access to the European Register service means it is possible to consult on-line the data for companies belonging to States forming part of the EBR (European Business Register) network, EEIG (European Economic Interest Group) founded by the European Business Register Providers according to the laws in force in each State.

This service guarantees for all market operators easy access

to the legal and economic information regarding European companies, through standard interrogation and reporting profiles.
EBR is also one of the European-level success stories in actual interconnection and communication between government bodies and public law organisations.

All the States adhering to the EBR are required to provide the

Company Search and Company File service, whereas the Search Persons in Office, Personal File and Deeds and Financial Statements services are only provided by certain countries, as provided for by national laws. It must be stressed that services, documents and schedules are not provided in the same way by all partners, as the different national laws regulate their content and forms.



The European Registers are consulted using the Telemaco service, subject to registration and according to the relevant price list.
In the search section, a specific menu item can be used to carry out, for each of the States who have signed up for the network, different types of selection on companies (by name or, according to the State, by company code or Registration Authority) or on Individuals (by Surname and Name), to identify the Partners, Directors, Auditors, other officers or qualifications.

Over the years, experience has shown that the service responds to the needs of operators in over-the-border electronic trading businesses, in "due diligence" services (the investigation process that is set up to analyse the value and state of a company, or a branch of business, to be purchased or invested in) and those managing verification of supplier and customer reliability. Merchant banks, financial institutions, international level legal offices are among the main users of the service.

List of Officers
List of Officers

this is the list of physical individuals or legal entities managing a business
Deeds and Financial Statements
Deeds and Financial Statements

these are the deeds (including the articles of association) and/or financial statements filed: these documents are generally available in the original language
Personal file
Personal file

this is the standard profile that groups together the information relating to a person (date of birth, address, tax code) and the list of appointments held by that person in one or more companies. Starting from this list it is possible to browse, using hypertext links, the information existing on each of the companies in which the person holds office



The service is updated when new services or new types of Deed and Financial Statements are activated by the national Business Register providers, or when new partners join the network. The user is notified of this directly on consulting the list of countries when accessing the service.

In the event of significant changes or new features, a notice will be displayed on the main search page. Further information on the service, including an updated list of the countries connected to the European Business Register network, is available on the website ebr.org.
