|What is Librebor.me?

LibreBOR: Web platform for consulting and analysing the Spanish Official Company Gazette (BORME) was born with the goal of opening up the data of the Spanish Commercial Registry. Taking advantage of the fact that since 2009 BORME is published in electronic format. LibreBOR is in charge of reading it for you every morning and adding the latest changes to our database. This way you can search, receive notifications and use this public data in a simple way for whatever you want.

|History

LibreBOR (formerly known as LibreBORME) was born at the end of 2014 as a Final Degree Project of Pablo Castellano co-supervised by the Universidad de Málaga and Fundación Ciudadana Civio and its development takes place throughout 2015.

In June 2015, LibreBOR received the third award in the I Certamen de Proyectos Libres de la Universidad de Granada.

At the beginning of 2016, the first phase of the development was completed and LibreBOR was awarded excellent by the tribunal. Since then, due to the repercussion obtained after appearing in online newspapers, its author decided to keep the service online and running, assuming its cost and continuing with its development.

At the beginning of 2019, we changed the name of the platform after receiving a legal threat from the Agencial Estatal Boletín Oficial del Estado for allegedly infringing the BORME trademark.

In 2020 and after a year of work, we launched the second version of the project. This version focuses on improving its professional side, including new features and services.

|Use cases

LibreBOR provides its users with a tool to gain a better understanding of the business network in Spain based on the public data available in Official Gazettes and goes a step further by allowing them to discover links between companies and officers.

Journalists, lawyers, civil servants and civil society organisations use it to investigate the societies of which a person is (or has been) a part.

Thousands of professionals also use it every month to find out more about the companies they contract services with, as well as to find potential clients among newly incorporated companies.

Surely you can also find a particular use for it.

|Services

LibreBOR offers professional and consultancy services that help to financially support the other free services.

|About the data

This website only shows public data available since 2009, when official gazettes such as the BORME began to be published in electronic format (Ley 11/2017, de 22 de junio, de acceso electrónico de los ciudadanos a los Servicios Públicos).

The data shown in LibreBOR has been obtained from public sources and its use is subject to the conditions set out in the BOE legal notice.

The data has been obtained by means of an automated computer process which may contain different types of errors.
On one hand, there are errors that come from the BORME itself: it is prepared manually and is therefore subject to typographical errors; and neither people nor companies come with a unique identifier such as the Spanish NIF number, so there is no way to differentiate the positions in companies for two people with the same name.
On the other hand, as these are automated computer processes with such a large amount of information, there may be failures that are difficult to detect due to the big volume of data and the impossibility of manual review by a human.

LibreBOR assumes no liability for errors, inaccuracies or omissions in the information provided. Consequently, the user may not claim any liability for damages resulting from errors and/or incorrectness or inaccuracy in the information provided.
