The Central trade register is one of the two components (Local trade registers and the Central Register) of the trade register. It gathers and describes all information relating to natural or legal persons exercising commercial activities or having a commercial structure. These persons must be registered, obtaining, thus, a registration number to identify them.
It is intended to make known the existence, characteristics and future of these professionals of the commercial activity to inform third parties (anyone can request communication).
The Central Trade Register is held by the Moroccan Industrial and Commercial Property Office.
