Data Location


We checked in September 8, and it stated last update was in August 31. So it is updated. In the Industrial Business Directory is contains only companies with more than 10 employees. Total registered is 5,636, as for the Directory Service companies the total registered is 3,117. Names of companies and addresses are listed, but no unique identifier seem to exist, only company legal names (Dénomination) and Raison Sociale. We are not sure these are all the companies in Tunisia, especially that it is stated in their FAQ that "To be included in the directory of industrial companies, which is available free of charge to operating industrial enterprises operating in Tunisia and employing ten people or more, contact the Regional Directorate of the API implementation that covers your region". Which means only companies who contact them are being listed.

Changed the dataset's existence to "unsure" based on the existence of some qualifying data, but not enough to satisfy the requirements of the Index.
