The companies register of Kosovo can be searched through, or browsed by inputting a blank search. The registry contains the name, address and type of company; there is a field for register number, but for some reason it appears blank for all companies.
The licensing status of the information is uncertain; Article 12 of Law No. 04/L-065 on copyright and related rights indicates that public documents such as government publications are not subject to copyright, but this may not apply to company documents or data. http://gzk.rks-gov.net/ActDocumentDetail.aspx?ActID=2787
I have marked the open license status of the register as uncertain as I am not convinced that company data falls under the category of official or government documents.
