Public data can be obtained for reuse in 3 different ways: via the Open Data file, the Public Search web services and the complete file for reuse

Open Data file

This is a CSV file for reuse containing limited data of all the active entities registered in the CBE at the creation date.

The file is updated each month and is available free of charge.

Public Search web services

Public Search web services allows you to integrate reusable public data of entities and their establishment units into your own application. This involves public data recorded in the CBE only (in other words: no external links).

There is a charge for these web services: 50 euros for 2,000 requests.

Complete file for reuse

A file updated every day except Sundays and Mondays containing extensive data about active and discontinued entities. To be able to use the file, you must first apply for data reuse with the Management Service and subsequently sign a licensing agreement. 

The data are made available free of charge for non-commercial reuse. The annual fee is €30,000 if the data is used for commercial purposes.
