Sometimes, the address of registered entities (hereinafter referred to as “entity”) mentioned in the CBE is not correct. Any interested party* may request the management department of the CBE to delete such an address.

E.g.: if you receive on your address correspondence for a registered entity, which is not yours or for which you are not the representative.

*! The entity that has not completed the formalities to which it is bound, may not contact the management department in order to have its data rectified.


To report an incorrect address to the CBE, please contact the management department of the CBE.

Address deletion form

By email:

By post:   

CBE – Deletions Service
Boulevard du Roi Albert II, 16
1000 Brussels

Please always specify the following information:

  • the name of the registered entity concerned,
  • its enterprise number, and  
  • the address (of the office and/or of the establishment unit) in question.

We also invite you to send us, if you have one, a copy of a decision, an investigation report or a report established by a police officer or an official mandated by an administration who certifies that the address is incorrect. This speeds up the processing of your file.

Upon receipt of your request, the management department of the CBE will invite the representative of the entity in question to regularise the situation within 30 days. If the representative does not react, two situations may arise:

  • or the file is sent to the Economic Inspection. An inspector will then visit the company and report their findings to the CBE. On the basis of the inspector’s report, the address will be ex officio deleted from the register, if the need arises.
  • or you have sent us a copy of a decision, an investigation report or a report. In such case, after the aforementioned period of 30 days has elapsed, the management department of the CBE may quickly delete the address.

Important: Given the increasing number of requests, the time to process the files can be significant.

The procedure for ex officio deletion of the address does not exempt the entity from carrying out its legal formalities.
