Comments

It is only possible to obtain companies data by inputting a search term into the search engine here: http://zefix.admin.ch/zfx-cgi/hrform.cgi/hraPage?alle_eintr=on&pers_sort=original&pers_num=0&language=4&col_width=366&amt=007 and it is not possible to browse or otherwise access the data without these restrictions.

Data is available for personal use: "publication of the whole database, or of parts of it, by any means is strictly forbidden". http://zefix.admin.ch/hrweb/eng/about.htm

There are daily summaries of new entries, changes and deletions to the register available to download on this page: http://zefix.admin.ch/shab/ but they are likely meant more as notifications than as a comprehensive resource.

Reviewer comments

It is not possible to browse through the database or access data without providing a search term, so I have penalised on the basis of being too restrictive.
