Autor: József Áts, Eötvös Loránd University, Hungary



As a result of many efforts in the field of official company information services at the turn of the Millennium, old dreams come true. The dreams of economists, businessmen and regulators about doing business more easily, transparently and securely. The dreams of information engineers about developing predefined user-side input that identified with digital-signature and shared automatically on the semantic Web. And last, but not least the dreams of European Union about building an information society. In today’s global world, doing business is unthinkable without proper, up-to-date and world wide business information services. One of the organic elements of this data processing services are the information about companies, including the basic official company information come from the trade registers of countries. As the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce emphasizes: "This means that the register is able to provide reliable answers to such questions as: • Does the company with which I wish to do business actually exist? • Is the person I am dealing with actually an authorized signatory? • What has happened to the company I used to do business with a few years ago?"
