(1)Address data and contact data have been divided from each other. Due to this change it is possible that the start date of the contact data is not correct. For more information, click here.

(2)The EC-classification of the Nacebel codes has changed on 1/1/2008. Both the Nacebel codification of 2003 and 2008 are available in Public Search. The 2003 codes were valid until 31/12/2007. On 1/1/2008, the new codification became valid. This was a mere administrative conversion : no activities of the entity or establishment unit have thus been changed.
